Adapt Your Home

Prepare

We can't control when emergencies happen, but it is important to take the steps now to make sure your family is ready for anything.

Overview

Be Prepared.

Ashland is anticipated to have more frequent and severe droughts, heat waves, and wildfires. These climate change impacts will have a tangible effect on public health and the quality of life for all residents. 

  • Wildfire smoke can cause serious health complications, especially for those with asthma or other respiratory conditions.
  • More frequent and severe heat waves can be deadly, especially for young children, the elderly, and exposed persons such as outdoor workers.
  • Drought, decreased summer stream flow and reduced snowpack will put a strain on our water supply affecting our water availability.

We can't control when emergencies happen, but it is important to take the steps now to be prepared!
