Staying Cool this Summer
Summer is here and we got our first blast of hot weather this past weekend. If you haven’t already made plans for how to deal with the heat this summer, now is the time. Visit newwestcity.ca/extreme-heat for information and resources on protecting yourself and your vulnerable family, neighbours, and pets. The City will monitor weather conditions and activate extreme heat protocols if the temperatures are expected to reach at least 33° during the day and 17° at night for two consecutive days.
Some of the City’s public facilities have air conditioning and welcome you (and your pets!) to visit if you need a venue to cool down. These locations include: Anvil Centre, Century House, New Westminster Public Library, and Queensborough Community Centre. You can also visit a spray park, outdoor pool, or attend a drop-in activity.
