The City of White Rock will be operating two cooling stations again this summer on days when Environment Canada issues heat warnings.
Two cooling stations will be open to the public:
- At the corner of Russell Avenue and Johnston Road, 10:00am - 6:00pm. Guests will be able to sit and cool off in an enclosed tent, and will be provided with bottled water, cold compresses, fans, sunscreen, first aid, and access to a water mister. Pets are permitted.
- At White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Avenue, 8:30am – 8:00pm. An air-conditioned space, chairs, and bottled water will be provided. Pets are permitted.
“With our summers growing increasingly hotter, we must find ways to ensure that our residents stay safe during hot spells,” said White Rock Mayor Megan Knight. “Sharing information about resources, such as White Rock’s cooling stations, is one way to help. We want to make sure that people know how they can protect themselves.”
The City’s heat event resource page will be kept up to date with days of operation at whiterockcity.ca/heatevent.
