Extreme Heat

On days when a heat warning is issued, it is advised to:

  • Drink lots of water
  • Stay out of the sun
  • Limit outdoor activity to morning and evening hours
  • Stay in air-conditioned places

Seniors and young children are particularly at risk during heat and smog-related weather conditions. Residents are encouraged to call or visit family, friends and neighbours to make sure they are okay, especially isolated adults and seniors, who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness.
