Tips for Hot Days

  • Drink lots of plain cool water before you feel thirsty
  • Stay cool and if possible, stay in an air-conditioned place
  • Wear a wide brimmed hat, UV protective sunglasses, and loose-fitting long shirts and pants.
  • Stay in the shade whenever possible
  • Reschedule or plan outdoor activities for cooler parts of the day
  • Call or visit family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness
  • If you feel faint, have difficulty breathing or feel confused and disoriented because of the heat, call your doctor. In an emergency, call 911.

For more information on how to protect your health during the heat, visit the Heat web site or review the various Guidelines which outline steps to help prevent heat-related illnesses. 

If You Need Assistance

If you feel faint, have difficulty breathing or feel confused and disoriented because of the heat, call your doctor. In an emergency, call 9-1-1. For more information on the prevention of heat-related health problems and safety guidelines, visit Peel’s Public Health website.

I want to express my deepest sympathies to the deceased resident and her family and friends as a result of this devastating explosion. As well my thoughts and prayers are with all residents impacted at this very difficult time.

I want to thank all the First Responders who attended immediately – Mississauga Fire Department, Peel Regional Police, Heavy Urban Search and Rescue Team, Animal Services and all Emergency Medical Services including Peel Paramedics. I was on site shortly after the explosion occurred and I am so proud of our First Responders not only for their immediate action but how they ensured all residents’ concerns were addressed and questions answered. I later attended Burnhamthorpe Community Centre where displaced residents were provided with essential services. Again, special thank you to the Region of Peel – Social Services, Salvation Army, Insurance Bureau of Canada and the Staff at Burnhamthorpe Community Centre for welcoming residents and again ensuring they were provided with anything they needed.

Going forward, the Office of the Fire Marshall Emergency Management Team is on site continuing their investigation. Peel Regional Police and City Building Officials are also on site ensuring both residents and buildings are safe.

Finally, I want to thank members of our community including the many churches, retailers and community groups who have come forward offering their assistance. At this time, no donations or personal supports are needed as all those residents who have been displaced have been taken care of.

I will continue to update my website as new information becomes available.
