City of Mississauga issues heat warning
A heat warning is officially in effect for Mississauga.
According to The Weather Network, temperatures are expected to hit 30 degrees today (June 9).
If you are outside and feel faint, have difficulty breathing or feel confused and disoriented because of the heat, call your doctor. In an emergency, call 9-1-1.
Tips for hot days
- Drink lots of plain, cool water before you feel thirsty
- Stay cool and if possible, stay in an air-conditioned place
- Wear a wide-brimmed hat, UV protective sunglasses, and loose-fitting long shirts and pants
- Stay in the shade whenever possible
- Reschedule or plan outdoor activities for cooler parts of the day
- Call family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness. It's best to call or video-conference - if that is not possible, practice physical distancing.
- Bring in pets without adequate shelter
