Extreme Temperatures – Heat

HALDIMAND COUNTY, ON – Haldimand County, much like most of Ontario and Quebec, is facing extreme temperatures. Temperatures will jump into the 30s, with humidex in the 40s, this week as potentially record-setting, and dangerous, heat moves into the provinces.

Vulnerable persons and pets are highly susceptible to heat-related illnesses. Heat-related illnesses include heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat fainting, heat edema (swelling of hands, feet and ankles), heat rash, and heat cramps (muscle cramps). Watch for symptoms of heat illness, which include:

  • Dizziness or fainting;
  • Nausea or vomiting;
  • Headache;
  • Rapid breathing and heartbeat;
  • Extreme thirst; and
  • Decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine.

If you experience any of these symptoms during extreme heat, immediately move to a cold place and drink liquids. Water is best.

Cooling stations have been made available throughout the County.

  • Arenas: Cayuga, Caledonia, Dunnville, and Hagersville are extending hours until 8pm on weekdays. Weekends 8am to 5pm during the heat warning.
