Learn about City’s Cooling Centres and ways to stay safe in the heat at one of 4 open houses

Last updated: May 2, 2022

The City of Burnaby will host four Cooling Centre open houses in May where you’ll learn more about the Cooling Centres, the City’s heat response plan and what you can do to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

“I encourage everyone to come to one of our Cooling Centre open houses and learn what you need to know to be ready,” said Mayor Mike Hurley. “Safety is our top priority at the City and we constantly update our plans to ensure we help protect the public. But we all need to take part, and get the information we need to be prepared in case another extreme heat event comes.”

Open Houses: 

  • Sunday, May 15:
    • 11:30 am–2 pm: Cameron Recreation Complex, 9523 Cameron St, Burnaby, BC
    • 5:30–8 pm: Confederation Seniors Centre, 4585 Albert St, Burnaby, BC
  • Sunday May 29:

    • 5:30–8 pm: Edmonds Recreation Centre, 7433 Edmonds St, Burnaby, BC

At noon and at 6 pm at each open house there will be presentations from the City about our Extreme Heat Response Plan. Staff from Fraser Health will also share information about heat health awareness and alternate ways to keep cool at home.

You’ll also be able to learn about the City’s new public alert system, as well as programs offered by City and some of its community safety partners.
