Keep cool during higher temperatures this summer and learn how to prevent heat related illness.


Tips to keep you cool and healthy during the heat 

  • Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.
  • Know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke and how to respond. Symptoms include thirst, dizziness, weakness, and fainting or collapsing. Learn more from Fraser Health.
  • If you have a window air conditioner, place it in a room you can close off from the rest of your home. Use the room as your cooling off space and try to stay in there as much as possible during the hottest parts of the day.
  • Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle during warm weather.

Plan ahead. Preparing for warmer temperatures or a heat event will help keep you cool and safe during higher temperatures.
