Hey everyone, a heat warning has been issued by Environment Canada for much of the Province, including the Okanagan and the West Kootenays. Record temperatures are in the forecast from Saturday until Tuesday. Watch for heat-related illness, and be aware of the increased risk of wildfires due to drought conditions.
We’ve got information posted on sun safety on our Health and Safety page and we’ve posted SPOTLIGHTS on sun safety on our blog. There are also tips and resources on weather hazards and safety on the Government of Canada website, including how you can prepare for summer weather.
The Government of Canada website also has a page for natural hazards with information about Wildfires here.
Stay safe and healthy, and stay cool!
