PRESS RELEASEHigh Temperature Advisory
Thursday, July 05, 2012
The City of Barrie wishes to remind residents that the high temperatures we are currently experiencing can be dangerous to health and residents are encouraged to take precautions.
Although the City of Barrie does not operate cooling stations, City facilities are open to the public for residents to visit to get a break from the heat.
During a high heat alert, residents should:
- Plan your activities before noon or in the evening
- Rest frequently in shaded areas
- Drinking plenty of fluids (unless fluid is restricted by your physician)
- Never leave infants, children or pets in a parked car
- Dress in cool, loose clothing and shade your head with a hat or umbrella
- Check regularly on family, friends or neighbours who are at higher risk of heat-related illnesses and who do not have air conditioning.
If you don't have air conditioning, spend part of the day in an air-conditioned place such as a shopping mall, library, community or recreation centre, cinema, or facility operated by agencies that support people in need, such as the Salvation Army. As well City beaches, the Lampman outdoor pool, or the splash pad in Heritage Park provide an excellent opportunity to cool off, but remember to guard against the effects of the sun. If you are looking to cool of in an indoor pool, the East Bayfield Community Centre and the Holly Community Centre offer open swims daily, visit www.barrie.ca
for a complete listing and search “swimming”.
