Vancouver Implements First Phase of Hot Weather Strategy

Following the death of Curtis Brick a homeless man that died last summer due to issues caused by heat, Vancouver has put in place an extreme-heat strategy. We talked about this issue in a recent blog posting.

Vancouver has started putting the strategy into effect by placing temporary water fountains around the city in key places. News 1130 has covered this story and The Province has also weighed in.

At Covenant House we are continuing to help our youth keep cool by providing lots of water, sunscreen and reminding youth to seek out shade.

We hope you and yours are having a fun, healthy and safe summer!
