Environment Canada is issuing a heat warning for our area as daily highs are near or over 29C and overnight near 14C or above.

  • Consider rescheduling outdoor activities to cooler hours of the day.
  • Take frequent breaks.
  • Spend time indoors
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Do not leave anyone or a pet inside a closed vehicle for any length of time.

Heat warnings are issued when there is a risk of heat illness, heat stroke or heat exhaustion.

Signs of Heat Stroke

  • high body temperature
  • lack of sweat
  • confusion
  • fainting
  • unconsciousness

Be very careful with seniors and children as they are at a higher risk. Extra vigilance is also required for those who work outside, socially isolated, diabetic conditions or unstable mental health. Pre-existing conditions to watch out for include those with a lung condition, heart, kidney or nervous system.

Remember to drink water and other non-alcoholic, non caffeinated beverages to stay hydrated. Spending time in air conditioning is best even if you have to go to a mall or indoor pool. Call the healthline 811 for advice associated with extreme heat.
