LOCATION: Montgomery County Fire Academy 1175 Conshohocken Road Conshohocken, PA 19428This event, hosted by DVRPC and Montgomery County, will start off with the “Game of Extremes.” Each participant will be assigned a role and will work as part of a team of ten to prepare a fictional community for weather extremes, including heat and flooding. This workshop will be an interesting way to learn about risks associated with our changing climate, impacts, and how we can prepare. Faced with climate impacts on a fictional community, participants will decide how to make community assets most resilient. After a complimentary lunch, representatives from the county and FEMA will also lead participants in a discussion on Montgomery County’s hazard mitigation plan and municipal implementation.
