Calgary summers are getting increasingly hotter and drier. Extreme heat can put your health at risk, causing illnesses like heat stroke and even death. The City of Calgary has compiled this list of heat preparedness resources:

  • The City of Calgary’s extreme heat website has information on how to prepare for and stay safe during extreme heat.
  • The City’s Weather Relief and Resources map can assist citizens in finding the nearest locations of public cooling locations and public water fountains.
  • The Government of Alberta’s Extreme Heat website displays information about staying cool, hydrated, and informed.
  • Calgarians are encouraged to download the WeatherCan app to receive latest updates on the forecast.
  • Remember that if someone in your life is more vulnerable to the dangers of heat (elderly, infants, people who live alone or with health concerns), make sure you check on them frequently.
  • It is hot for everyone, but If you see an unhoused person in distress in the heat, please call the DOAP Team at (403) 998-7388. Additional information on When to Call DOAP is available here
  • If anyone appears to be in medical distress, call 9-1-1 immediately.
