Top 6 Tips for Staying Cool!

Hot weather can be a safety concern. Make sure you’re prepared and play it smart and safe when the temperatures soar. More information is available on the the Fraser Health website 

  1. Drink plenty of cool water! Drink before you become thirsty especially if you are sweating!
      
  2. Wear a hat! Use sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher and apply every hour or after you get wet.
      
  3. Leave your pet at home! Don’t leave your pet locked inside your vehicle, provide them with lots of shade and fresh water. Take care when walking them on hot cement.
      
  4. Elderly people should take extra care. Check on your neighbours and friends.
      
  5. Stay indoors where it’s cool (malls, recreation centres, libraries). Schedule activities for early morning or late evening when it’s cooler.
      
  6. Avoid strenuous activity during the hottest parts of the day, find some shade or cool places to play.
