Tips to Keep Cool

Aug 01, 2017
Hey Nanaimo,
With the expected heat wave this week, we have compiled a few ideas on how to stay cool and a few safety reminders to keep top of mind. 
Please Remember:  
  • To wear a hat
  • To slather the sunscreen on before going out in the sun
  • If possible, choose cooler times of the day for strenuous activities and exercise
  • That staying hydrated is important, pack your water bottle
  • To take moments in the shade to cool down
  • It is not OK to leave a pet or child in a hot vehicle
  • We are on level two water restrictions
  • There is a BC wide fire ban in effect
  • To properly dispose of cigarettes and other smoking materials
  • To try to reduce the risk of a wildfire spreading you can remove deadfall and debris and keep hedges trimmed and grass mowed


Parks & Recreation has a few events & ideas to help you stay cool:
