Thankfully the weather experts from EC put out a statement that clearly states if you don’t have AC in the house…you’re pretty much screwed.

Residents of and visitors to these regions are advised to take the following precautions to protect themselves, their families and their neighbours:

  • Consider rescheduling outdoor activities to cooler hours of the day.
  • Take frequent breaks from the heat, spending time outdoors at your house or at cooled public buildings (including malls or indoor pools).
  • Drink plenty of water and other non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated beverages to stay hydrated.
  • Do not leave any person or pet inside a closed vehicle, for any length of time.

Keep an eye out for symptoms of heat stroke or heat exhaustion, such as high body temperature, lack of sweat, confusion, fainting, and unconsciousness.

So if you have the flexibility of playing hooky at work, check out some public pools that will keep you cool for now or the Calgary Stampede’s cool zone.

Don’t forget that SPF and remember that water is your best friend all week long
