Improving Resilience to High-Impact Weather for Healthcare Facilities and Services

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

A Prescription for the 21st Century:  Improving Resilience to High-Impact Weather for Healthcare Facilities and Services

Healthcare facilities and services provide key underpinnings for a thriving community. Therefore, ensuring their resilience to high-impact weather is critical. High-impact weather events present a challenge in that they disrupt health facilities and services and decrease the ability to provide healthcare at a time when a community’s needs increase due to injuries and illness associated with the event. As more communities will emerge in areas vulnerable to high-impact weather, the need will grow for resilient healthcare facilities and services.

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) Policy Program conducted a workshop to explore ideas on increasing the resilience of healthcare facilities and services to high-impact weather events. In this report, which was funded in part by NOAA's Office of Weather & Air Quality, a strategy was developed for improving resilience that first understands the risks one faces, then resolves the vulnerabilities of health facilities, and finally, prepares for the continuity of health services. 

For more information, including Key Findings and the entire report, please visit: http://www2.ametsoc.org/ams/index.cfm/policy/studies-analysis/prescription-for-the-21st-century-building-resilience-to-high-impact-weather-for-healthcare-facilities-and-services/?utm_source=hfs&utm_medium=various&&utm_campaign=policystudyseries
