This page provides information about climate change and links to related tools and documents. The page is intended for anyone interested in learning more about our resources and other federal government resources to support climate preparedness and resilience.

Emergency Management in a Changing Climate

The challenges posed by climate change, such as more intense storms, frequent heavy precipitation, heat waves, drought, extreme flooding, and higher sea levels could significantly alter the types and magnitudes of hazards faced by communities and the emergency management professionals serving them.  Regardless of why the climate is changing, emergency managers have to be poised to respond to disasters and support preparedness efforts nationwide.  

Emergency managers and other FEMA partners need information to help them make decisions on how to manage climate-related risks and capitalize on opportunities to further preparedness. Our goal is to provide easy access to our products and other Federal products to support decision makers.
