The City would also like to point out a few golden rules to beat the heat:  

  • Drink regularly, don’t wait until you are thirsty;
  • Minimize physical efforts;
  • Spend a few hours every day in a cool or air-conditioned location;
  • Take a cool shower or bath as often as necessary, or cool off with a wet towel;
  • Keep your friends and family informed of how you are or ensure that a parent or friend checks on you regularly and even comes to check your home’s temperature in a heat wave;
  • If you feel unwell, do not hesitate to call Info-Santé at 811. 

 
Exposure to excessive heat can cause serious health problems, for both humans and animals. In the event of an emergency, do not hesitate to call 911.
