Hot weather has arrived! Protect yourself from high heat and humidity

June 15, 2018

Update: June 18, 2018

A heat warning is now in effect for Guelph, Erin and Southern Wellington County.

The risks are greater earlier in the season when people aren’t used to the heat.

Protect yourself and others by:

  • Knowing the forecast and being on the lookout for heat warnings
  • Having a plan to take breaks from the heat
  • Remembering that children, the elderly and those with chronic conditions are at higher risk of heat-related illness
  • Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water or juice
  • Never leaving people or pets inside a parked vehicle
