Heat Warning Ended for Kawartha Lakes

(CITY OF KAWARTHA LAKES) – Effective immediately, the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit is terminating the Heat Warning for the City of Kawartha Lakes issued on June 12.

Environment Canada has forecasted cooler temperatures and less humid air.

The Health Unit has adopted a series of heat response thresholds designed to advise the public, health professionals and community service providers on appropriate measures they can take to reduce the health effects of hot, humid and smoggy weather. These consist of ‘Heat Warnings’ and ‘Extended Heat Warnings’ and are issued when Environment Canada forecasts hot or humid weather and weather-related health effects may occur.

While the Heat Warning has been terminated for Kawartha Lakes, local residents are reminded to take precautions in hot weather, including drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated, keeping their homes cool and staying out of the heat whenever possible.
