Burnaby RCMP is activating its Extreme Heat Response Plan due to high temperatures in the Lower Mainland.
Burnaby RCMP will be doing proactive public awareness and outreach patrols over the coming days to connect homeless and vulnerable community members with Cooling Centre location information and other resources. Officers are also handing out care packages to help people stay safe in the heat.
As of Monday, July 3, 2023, the City of Burnaby is operating four Cooling Centre locations, which will remain open between 10 am and 10 pm daily until the heat subsides.
- Cameron Community Centre (9523 Cameron Street)
- Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool (240 Willingdon Avenue)
- Bonsor Recreation Complex (6550 Bonsor Avenue)
- Edmonds Community Centre (7433 Edmonds Street)
In addition, The Society to End Homelessness in Burnaby is operating a pop-up cooling station at Kensington Park (Corner of Frances Street and Fell Avenue) between 11 am and 6 pm from Tuesday, July 4 to Thursday, July 6, 2023.
Burnaby RCMP is also urging families to make sure windows are secure, as they can be dangerous for children.
Pets should not be left in vehicles during the hot weather. Animals in distress can be reported to police or the SPCA Provincial Call Centre at 1-855-622-7722.
Heat can be dangerous. To stay safe, Fraser Health suggests staying hydrated, limiting outdoor activities during the day, and self-monitoring for signs of heat-related illness. Read more tips here.
