Extreme Temperature Project

Date Posted: February 13, 2024

The Haisla Nation and District of Kitimat are partnering on a project to better understand and plan for extreme heat and extreme cold weather events.

This Project is a collaboration between the District of Kitimat and Haisla Nation, to continue increase preparedness and ability to manage emergency events in the region, as well as the impacts of a changing climate. The Project will create plans to help address and reduce the potential impacts on the communities.

Project Outcomes

  • Extreme Temperature Response Plan – A detailed plan so relevant partners and organizations can better respond if/when extreme temperature weather happens.
  • Public awareness/education materials – Materials will be created and shared with the communities so everyone knows how to prepare for extreme temperature weather events.

Project Timeline

  • The Project began in November 2023 and is due to finish in June 2024
