The Medical Officer of Health for the City of Hamilton has issued a Heat Warning for tomorrow.
In the event that the humidex reading of 40 continues for 4 consecutive days, or the humidex reading is expected to be 45 or greater, the Medical Officer will issue a Stage 3 Heat Alert.
The City of Hamilton and participating community agencies are responding to the heat by offering “cool places” to go at all 3 stages.
They can be identified by a “Cool Down Here” sign at their entrances, along with a heat meter sign, which indicates which stage we are at.
Starting today, the City of Hamilton has opened an additional 28 splash pads bringing the total to 38 across the city. The public is also reminded that the City has drop-in programs for skating and swimming (indoor pools).
