The Council declared September 24 – 30 as Climate Preparedness Week in the City of Boston.

Councilor Wu provided what she referred to as a “public service announcement” before the Council and guests during this week’s Council meeting. She announced that September is National Preparedness Month, explaining, “We have seen the need for preparedness, not just in the tragedy that happened in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, but also in our extreme weather events.”

The Council declared September 24 – 30 as Climate Preparedness Week in the City of Boston, a week dedicated to learning, service, and actions that better prepare our communities for extreme weather events. During this time, community leaders will host events around greater Boston to educate residents on how to prepare for the dangerous impacts of climate change and extreme weather.
