Three ways to protect you and your loved ones during an extreme heat event
Keep up to date with local weather forecast and alerts and arrange for regular check-ins on your family members, neighbours or friends in case they need help.
Drink plenty of cool liquids, especially water and if you are hungry, fruits and vegetables are a great option with high water content.
On hot days, spend time in cool places like shaded areas or if possible, air-conditioned spots like a public library.
Make sure to follow the COVID-19 advice of your local public health unit and adjust your behaviours accordingly.
Heat stroke is a medical emergency!
Call 911 or your local emergency number immediately if you are caring for someone who has a high body temperature and is either unconscious, confused or has stopped sweating.
