Why is This Important?

With climate change the world is reacting with unprecedented floods, wildfires, severe weather, and most recently a global pandemic -It’s not if a disaster will occur . . . it’s when.  Those who are not prepared for the next disaster, many not survive the next disaster. 

The RDKB’s 2022 Climate Action Plan documents climate impacts along with actions to reduce GHG emissions and prepare our communities for current and future changes to our climate. 

In 20 years wildfires are predicted to grow 6 times larger until the forest can no longer support a fire of that size
Over 100 businesses and 400 homes were severely impacted by the Grand Forks flood of May 2018. The city of Trail has suffered from catastrophic floods in 1948, 1961, 1969, and 1997
