Hotter days are on their way, and with COVID-19 protocols still in place, building operations staff need to be ready for extreme hot weather and potential wildfires contributing to poor air quality. Join the BC Non-Profit Housing Association and their panel of experts to hear how to respond to extreme heat combined with pandemic protocols in low-rise buildings and single family homes.

  • Angela Eykelbosh, Environmental Health Scientist, BC Centre for Disease Control
  • Ulryke Weissgerber, Division Manager, Metro Vancouver Housing
  • Chris Higgins, Green Building Planner, City of Vancouver
  • Tamsin Mills, Senior Sustainability Specialist, City of Vancouver

Session moderator: Jackie Kanyuk, Program Delivery Manager, Asset Management, BCNPHA

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the effects of extreme heat in low- and high-rise buildings and ways to mitigate it.
  • Details about effective cleaning products and protocols to protect against COVID-19 transmission.
  • How and where to access low cost/no cost tools and resources to prepare for the effects of extreme heat and poor air quality events.
