Community Care Licensing (CCLD) Facility Impact Climate Section (FICS): Heat Prevention


The Facility Impact Climate Section (FICS) promotes the health, safety, and quality of life for individuals in community care through enhanced protection focused on prevention of heat related illnesses and provides resources to community care Licensed Facilities.


  • Outreach to Licensed Facilities to prevent heat related illness by providing tips to stay cool during summer months.
  • Mitigate heat related complaints, citations, and prevent heat related illnesses to our Licensed Facilities by promoting equity-based strategies for remediation.


One of the main purposes of the FICS is to provide educational outreach to facilities so that awareness and additional knowledge is provided on how to prevent illnesses that are caused from the dangers of extreme heat. Furthermore, Educational Outreach also aims to support CCLD Licensed Facilities to ensure comfortable temperature shall be maintained at all areas in compliance with licensing standards.


CCLD is implementing the Extreme Heat Action Plan to deliver on the Governor's climate and opportunity agenda. CCLD has an action plan to define the most vulnerable licensed facilities to qualify for mitigation. For more information, please check back for updates.
