Valley Cooling Centre Info for This Week’s Mini Heat Wave

Fraser Valley – A Heat Warning is in effect for the Fraser Valley focusing on Wednesday and Thursday where daytime highs could reach 35C.

It is important residents stay cool, plan ahead and stay out of the sun as much as possible, particularly during the peak heat hours late afternoon and early evening.

Residents are encouraged to stay hydrated, check regularly on family members and neighbors, particularly seniors and those who are housebound, for signs of heat-related illness, seek out an air-conditioned facility to get a break from the heat and never leave children or pets inside parked vehicles.
