Three ways to protect you and your loved ones during an extreme heat event

Be informed
Keep up to date with local weather forecast and alerts and arrange for regular check-ins on your family members, neighbours or friends in case they need help.

Get hydrated
Drink plenty of cool liquids – especially water – and if you are hungry, fruits and vegetables are a great option with high water content.

Stay cool
On hot days, spend time in cool places like shaded areas or if possible, air-conditioned spots like a public library. Remember to follow any COVID-19 guidelines in place.
