Prepare Yourself for Extreme Heat

Heat events, also referred to as heatwaves, encompass consecutive days of temperatures exceeding the usual range for a specific region. With the ongoing climate changes, British Columbia can anticipate an increase in the frequency, duration, and intensity of heat events.

 

While heat events can impact the health of individuals, extreme heat poses a significantly higher risk of severe illness, particularly for those lacking access to a cool indoor setting. As outdoor temperatures escalate each day, the heat can accumulate indoors, creating a potentially perilous situation. The longer the duration of the heat event, the greater the danger it presents.

“I feel very fortunate that, during this challenging time of COVID, I can contribute my medical and language skills, and work with many dedicated people and organizations in B.C. to help provide meaningful support to our community members in their times of need,” said Kendall. “I am deeply humbled by this award, and it should be rightly shared with all the folks with whom I have the pleasure of collaborating.”
