Heat Related Updates

Keep up to date with water restrictions and the fire danger rating.

Heat-related illnesses are more likely during long periods of hot weather. Everyone is at risk of heat-related illness.

Those most vulnerable to high temperatures include young children, pregnant women, the elderly, those working or exercising in the heat, persons with chronic illnesses, people living alone in un-air-conditioned homes, and the homeless.

For more information on heat-related illness, call HealthLinkBC at 811.

During the Environment Canada Heat Advisory people are encouraged to use air conditioned services and facilities that already exist in the neighborhood as cooling places.

Tips for Keeping Cool

  1. Drink plenty of cool water. Drink before you become thirsty especially if you are sweating.
  2. Wear sun protection equipment and products (e.g. hat, sunscreen).
  3. Seniors, at-risk groups including people with chronic and pre-existing illnesses, and children should take extra care to stay hydrated and cool.
  4. Stay indoors where it's cool. Schedule activities for early morning or late evening when it is cooler.
  5. Avoid strenuous activity during the hottest parts of the day (12-4pm). Find shaded or cool places for play and/or recreation.
  6. Leave your pet at home. Don't leave your pet locked inside your vehicle. Provide pets with shade and fresh water. Don't walk pets on hot cement.
  7. Check on your neighbours and friends.
  8. Seek medical attention if you experience symptoms that are out of the ordinary, such as: heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, fatigue, dizziness, and/or headache or nausea

Visit HealthLinkBC for more information.

If you suspect someone is suffering from heat related illness get to a clinic or emergency room or call 911 in case of emergency.
