万锦市政府发出6月16、17、18日连续三天高温警报 提供防暑信息

来源:万锦市政府   更新:2018-06-16 15:18:58   作者:万锦市政府

Based on information from Environment Canada, Markham has issued a heat warning for Saturday, June 16 which will remain in effect until Monday evening due to daytime temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius with humidex values in the low 40s.

It is important to take precautions to avoid suffering heat-related illnesses. 

Markham recommends the following based on Health Canada guidelines

• Drink plenty of cool liquids, especially water, to decrease your risk of dehydration. 
• Wear loose-fitting, light-coloured clothing made of breathable fabric. 
• Keep people and pets in your care out of parked vehicles and direct sunlight. 
• Spend a few hours in a cool place - a tree-shaded area, swimming facility or an air-conditioned building such as a shopping mall, grocery store, place of worship or public library. 
• Take cool showers or baths. 
• Prepare meals that don't need to be cooked in your oven. 
• Block sunlight by opening awnings, and closing curtains and blinds during the day. 
• Avoid sun exposure - shade yourself by wearing a wide-brimmed, breathable hat or using an umbrella. 
• If you are taking medication or have an existing health condition, ask your doctor or pharmacist if heat exposure increases your health risk and follow their advice. 
• If you have an air conditioner with a thermostat, keep it set to somewhere between 22ºC (72ºF) and 26ºC (79ºF), which will reduce your energy costs and provide you with needed relief. 
• If you have a window air conditioner, cool only one room where you can go for heat relief. 
• Frequently visit friends, neighbours, and elderly family members, especially those who are chronically ill, to make sure they are cool and hydrated. 
• Reschedule or plan outdoor activities during cooler parts of the day.
