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.

Keeping Burnaby safe depends on the involvement of community members, the RCMP and City officials.  There are many opportunities in Burnaby for citizens to get involved and maintain Burnaby as a peaceful and secure place to live, work, play and visit. 

Some opportunities are connected to formal programs offered through the RCMP and the City, while others to events and activities sponsored by community-based groups.
