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.

Local Government Awareness Week

May 21-25, 2018 is Local Government Awareness Week in BC. This week helps you ‘get to know’ your local government, and to learn more about the many programs and services that the City of Burnaby provides.

This year’s theme for LGAW is ‘Your Voice Counts'. This theme was chosen for 2018 because of the upcoming Local Government Election on October 20, 2018. Informational materials about the upcoming Election will be launched during this week.
