Another hot attack is driving into British Columbia, prompting the region’s public safety ministry to alert citizens to prepare a heat plan as temperatures rise this weekend.
A report Tuesday said an extreme heat emergency is not desired, but heat alerts are likely in some places, starting as early as Saturday and persisting into next week. It said a heat plan is “necessary” and people should identify cool zones in their houses and at nearby community centers or libraries.
The plan should also identify vulnerable household members and neighbors who are in danger of heart diseases, require regular checkups and have ways to cool down, such as taking showers and drinking abundant water.
