If you haven’t noticed it’s HOT outside and the forecast says it is likely to continue until Saturday night.
This kind of heat can be dangerous and it’s best to seek relief from the heat during the hottest parts of the day.
The City of Winnipeg has a number of “cooling areas” where people can cool off and have access to drinking water.
The public is welcome to go into any city facility that is open on weekdays and on weekends during regular business hours including libraries and leisure centres.
Pools and spray pads can also offer relief from the heat.
As a reminder NEVER leave a pet or child unattended in a vehicle during the summer. Temperatures can rise inside a vehicle (even with the windows cracked open) to dangerous levels within minutes.
Remember to stay hydrated by drinking 500ml to 1 litre of water per hour while working or playing outside.
Although a nice refreshing drink on a patio may seem nice in this kind of weather sugary drinks and alcohol will actually cause your body to lose fluids faster so make sure you keep drinking water between adult beverages.
Make sure your pets also have an endless supply of water during hot weather. If it’s hot outside for you it is worse for them.
