BEAT THE HEAT
With high temperatures in the forecast for this weekend, we're reminding residents to be prepared and stay cool. Here are some tips to beat the heat:
💧 Stay hydrated – drink lots of water
🚗 Never leave children or pets on their own in a vehicle, as temperatures can rise quickly.
❄ Stay cool in air-conditioned buildings such as the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre, Albion Community Centre, library and local malls.
☀ Limit the amount of time outdoors between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm when the heat and sun are most intense.
💧 Take a splash in our water parks which are now open.
🏠 Check in on neighbors, family, and friends that need help.
😎 Dress accordingly by wearing light coloured, loose clothing to cover your skin and a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
👟 Avoid demanding physical work or exercise in the heat.
🏠 Keep your home cool by closing shades, opening windows at night and using an air conditioner if you have one.
