Staying Safe During Hot Weather

Excessive heat can be dangerous to your health and the health of your loved ones. But there are many things you can do to prepare for warmer weather or an extreme heat emergency. Follow these tips to help keep cool and ensure the safety of others: 

  • Avoid activities that require lots of effort such as exercising during the daytime when the weather is hottest.
  • Wear light clothing and a hat when in direct sun.
  • Stay hydrated with cool liquids especially water. (Note: Many City parks, including Town Centre Park and Mundy Park, have drinking water fountains.)
  • Find shelter in shaded areas such as parks and trails.
  • Check on people at risk and get them to a cool space or seek medical attention, if required.
  • Offer pets plenty of water and ways to stay cool, such as a cool damp towel to lay on.
  • Never leave pets or children in enclosed vehicles, even with windows open or in the shade.
