Keeping Metro Boston Cool: A Regional Heat Preparedness and Adaptation Plan

Organization: Metro Mayors Climate Taskforce & Metropolitan Area Planning Council

Year: 2022

This Heat Preparedness and Adaptation Plan provides an actionable roadmap and recommendations on how the region can better prepare for and adapt to extreme heat and rising temperatures. This plan primarily addresses strategies and actions that reduce risk and increase preparedness through public health, planning, land use, and other municipal and regional actions. This comprehensive plan also provides strategies and actions to improve municipal and regional response to heat emergencies, although it is not intended to stand in for a robust municipal heat emergency response plan.
