Hazard Management

Extreme weather, such as heavy rain, snow, wind and electrical storms or heat waves, can lead to natural disasters such as flood, landslides, avalanches and wildfires. These events can risk people’s safety and can damage homes, businesses, transportation routes, lines of communication and utilities, such as gas and hydro.

In a changing climate, extreme weather events are expected to become more frequent, more severe, or both. Communities need to assess the risks to which they are vulnerable, take preventive steps where possible, and plan emergency response to meet those risks.

See Coastal Management for resources specific to BC's coastal flood risks. You can find several other resources featured on ReTooling Essentials page to get you started.
