Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

Walking in Burnaby

Why Walk?

The oldest form of mobility, walking is a fun, healthy and inexpensive way of getting around. It can provide many benefits: walking helps us feel both healthy and happy, helps us reduce impacts to the environment by replacing short driving trips, helps us feel connected by increasing opportunities to engage with our neighbours, and encourages us to spend more time in public spaces, creates vibrancy and encouraging us to use local stores and restaurants.
