Brampton opens heat relief locations as heat wave continues


Published July 19, 2022 at 1:37 pm

The City is reminding Brampton residents to keep cool in the midst of an ongoing heat wave.

In a statement today (July 19), the City says it has opened heat relief locations in all its public access buildings — Brampton Civic Centre, City Hall, recreation centres, and libraries — during regular business hours.

Additionally, the city’s splash pads are open from 9 am to 9 pm and the Chinguacousy Park wading pool is open 10 am to 8 pm, weather permitting.

Residents are advised to restrict outdoor activity as much as possible, stay out of the sun, and drink lots of water.

It’s also encouraged to check in on seniors, young children and pets, as they are particularly vulnerable to the heat.

A heat warning was issued on Monday for the next two days, with temperatures feeling like 41 degrees Celsius with the humidity.

Tuesday’s expected overnight low near 20 C will provide little relief from the heat.

Slightly cooler temperatures are anticipated on Thursday.
