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.

Programs for Parents and Children

Children's Immunization Clinics                  
Children's Immunization Clinics are held weekly throughout Burnaby. While nurses counsel parents and administer vaccines, volunteers weigh and measure infants, look after siblings when necessary and keep the clinic running smoothly. These clinics are held at Cameron Recreation Centre, Deer Lake, Edmonds, Eileen Dailly Pool Centre, and South Burnaby United Church Hall.

Breast Feeding Clinics
Breast Feeding Clinics are held twice a week on Wednesdays at McGill Library and on Thursdays at Tommy Douglas Library in the afternoon. Volunteers will assure your comfort and weigh and measure your baby. 

Cuddle Program
Volunteers provide gentle guidance and a helping hand in caring for your newborn. You can take this time to do housework or get some much needed rest. Cuddle program referrals come through Public Health Nurses. The Cuddle Program was developed by the City and has been so successful, it has attracted positive attention from other communities who want to replicate the program.
