Idaho Extreme Heat

Idaho's poor preparedness grade for extreme heat reflects the fact that the state has taken much less action than most states to prepare for both its current and future risks, in spite of the fact that the state doesn't face a very high extreme heat threat.



For more information on how prepared Idaho is for its growing extreme heat threat, read the detailed state report.


Is Idaho taking action?

  • The state lacks sector-specific programs that address its current extreme heat risks
  • Idaho's Hazard Mitigation Plan discusses potential impacts of climate change on future extreme heat events
  • The State Water Plan discusses potential adaptation strategies that could increase resilience to future extreme heat risks
