During Heat Waves:

  • Drink fluids, especially water, before feeling thirsty.
  • Slow down! Your body can't function as well in high temperatures.
  • Cool down in cool store, public library, or community pool.
  • Shade heads and faces with a loose-fitting ventilated hat or umbrella when outdoors.
  • Dress appropriately in light-weight, light-coloured, and loose-fitting clothing.
  • Avoid getting sunburned. It decreases the body's ability to cool.
  • Never leave infants, children or pets inside a parked vehicle.
  • Remember to check on elderly family members, neighbours and friends to make sure they are comfortable and safe.
