  • Greater Sudbury and vicinity
  • Markstay-Warren, St. Charles
  • West-Nipissing, French River
  • Chapleau, Missinaibi Lake
  • Gogama, Foleyet

Please disseminate as appropriate.

The Heat Warning, which began Wednesday, July 03, 2019, is being extended given the hot, humid weather in the forecast. Extended Heat Warnings remain in effect while the weather stays at 29 degrees Celsius or above during the day and 18 degrees Celsius or above at night or the humidex reaches 36 or above.

“Frequently check on your friends, neighbours, and relatives, especially if they are at higher risk of heat-related illness to ensure that they are staying cool and hydrated,” said Burgess Hawkins, a manager with Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ Environmental Health Division.

Continuous exposure to high levels of heat can lead to dehydration and illnesses such as heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat fainting, heat edema (swelling of hands, feet and ankles), heat rash, heat cramps (muscle cramps), and even death. People who are at higher risk include, older adults, infants and young children, pregnant women, people with chronic illnesses, people who are homeless, people who use alcohol or illicit drugs, and those who work or exercise in the heat. Those who take medications or have a health condition should consult their doctor or pharmacist to determine if they are at increased risk from the heat and follow their recommendations.

Symptoms of heat-related illness include dizziness or fainting, nausea or vomiting, headache, rapid breathing and heartbeat, extreme thirst and decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine. If you or someone in your care experiences these symptoms, contact a health care professional, friend, or family member for help. In emergencies, call 911.

Take precautions and stay cool during this time of high temperatures. Take a break from the heat by spending a few hours in a cool place, for example, in a tree-shaded area, swimming facility, or an air-conditioned public building such as a shopping mall, grocery store, place of worship, public library, or home of a family member or friend. Drink plenty of cool liquids, especially water, before you feel thirsty to decrease your risk of dehydration. Avoid sun exposure by shading yourself by wearing a wide-brimmed, breathable hat or using an umbrella, and wearing loose-fitting, light-coloured clothing made of breathable fabric.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts offers information on beating the heat in apartment buildings, keeping your pets safe, doing outdoor activities in heat and smog, and keeping your children safe during hot weather.

For more information on Heat Warnings and preventing heat-related illness, please call Public Health Sudbury & Districts at 705.522.9200, ext. 464 (toll-free 1.866.522.9200)  or visit phsd.ca.

 


Heat Warning Issued - Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019

Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a Heat Warning for areas within the Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ service area including:

  • Greater Sudbury and vicinity
  • Markstay-Warren, St. Charles
  • West-Nipissing, French River
  • Chapleau, Missinaibi Lake
  • Gogama, Foleyet

Please find the media release at the following link: https://www.phsd.ca/news/heat-warning-wednesday-july-3-2019

The French version can be found here: https://www.phsd.ca/fr/news-fr/avertissement-de-chaleur-mercredi-3-juillet-2019

Please disseminate as appropriate.

With hot, humid weather in the forecast for the next few days, Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a Heat Warning for areas within Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ service area beginning Wednesday, July 3, 2019. Heat Warnings are issued by Environment and Climate Change Canada when the forecast rises for two days to 29 degrees Celsius or above during the day and 18 degrees Celsius or above at night or the humidex is 36 or above.

Continuous exposure to high levels of heat can lead to dehydration and illnesses such as heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat fainting, heat edema (swelling of hands, feet and ankles), heat rash, heat cramps (muscle cramps), and even death. People who are most at risk include, older adults, infants and young children, pregnant women, people with chronic illnesses, people who are homeless, people who use alcohol or illicit drugs, and those who work or exercise in the heat. Those who take medications or have a health condition should consult their doctor or pharmacist to determine if they are at increased risk from the heat and follow their recommendations.

“Although some individuals are at higher risk, anyone can suffer from heat-related illnesses,” said Burgess Hawkins, a manager with Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ Environmental Health Division. “Everyone should take precautions.”

Tips to prevent heat-related illness

  • Frequently visit neighbours, friends, and older family members, especially those who are chronically ill, to make sure that they are cool and hydrated.
  • Drink plenty of cool liquids, especially water, before you feel thirsty to decrease your risk of dehydration. Thirst is not a good indicator of dehydration.
  • Babies under 6 months of age do not need extra water in hot weather; however, you might need to feed them more often. Follow your baby’s feeding cues. Encourage babies over 6 months and children to drink frequently. Offer the breast or if not breastfeeding, offer water.
  • Reschedule or plan outdoor activities during cooler parts of the day.
  • Wear loose-fitting, light-coloured clothing made of breathable fabric.
  • Never leave people or pets in your care inside a parked vehicle or in direct sunlight—even if the windows are down.
  • Take a break from the heat by spending a few hours in a cool place, for example, in a tree-shaded area, swimming facility, or an air-conditioned public building such as a shopping mall, grocery store, place of worship, public library, or home of a family member or friend.
  • Take a cool bath or shower periodically, or cool down with cool, wet towels.
  • Prepare meals that do not need to be cooked in your oven.
  • Block sun out by closing awnings, curtains, or blinds during the day.
  • Avoid sun exposure. Shade yourself by wearing a wide-brimmed, breathable hat or using an umbrella.

 

Know the signs and symptoms of heat-related illness. They include dizziness or fainting, nausea or vomiting, headache, rapid breathing and heartbeat, extreme thirst, and decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine. If you or someone in your care experiences these symptoms, contact a health care professional, friend, or family member for help. In emergencies, call 911.

Blue Sky Net, along with other similar organizations throughout Northern Ontario have teamed up to create a broadband information portal called Connectednorth.ca. One important function of the site is to collect information about service levels from Northern Ontarians directly. This information is used to set priorities for service improvements and to provide funding agencies with real-time data.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!! In an ongoing effort to demonstrate the need for improved internet access we need to hear from those affected… That’s you!

Filling out our Internet Access Survey and conducting a Speed Test at Connectednorth.ca provides Blue Sky Net with valuable data to be used to show the demand for improved services in your area!

While you’re there please browse the site and all its valuable internet related information!

Internet Service Questions?

We can answer them at www.connectednorth.ca

Many residents throughout rural Canada have limited access to affordable high speed internet. This is mainly because the investment needed to install and operate state of the art internet services is expensive, and there is uncertainty in rural markets’ ability to return that investment.

Over the past 3 years, Blue Sky Net in partnership with FedNor and area Internet Service Providers have created a visual database of all of Northern Ontario including the areas that lack sufficient High Speed access.

“Every ISP that operates in Northern Ontario has contributed coverage information to our BAIMAP Project” says Susan Church, Executive Director of Blue Sky Net of their ongoing Broadband mapping project. “It’s quite clear that there is a divide between the more urban communities and those that are more dispersed when it comes to access to higher capacity internet services. What we want to do now is determine the demand for service improvements.”

Blue Sky Net based in North Bay along with similar organizations in the Muskokas, Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie and Thunder Bay have created an online broadband information portal called Connectednorth.ca. One of the many features of the portal includes a high speed service availability checker where visitors can search their street address to see what ISP delivers connectivity to their cottage, home or office.

“We’ve been working in broadband development for over a decade now and we recognize that there is a constant trend to demand higher capacities and speeds and we have no reason to believe that this demand will stop. The ISPs we work with realize this but are challenged by the costs to bring these services to market. A real focal point of Connectednorth.ca is to not only provide visitors with useful service-related information, but we also need visitors to participate in building a better internet for Northerners.”

Connectednorth.ca hosts an internet speed test to measure how visitor’s internet service is performing, in real time. Test results (not personal information) will be captured and shared with those who can make a difference – Internet Service Providers.

Also, visitors are encouraged to take a short Internet Access Survey. The responses to this will be linked to speed test results to get a more complete picture of a visitor’s internet usage and their desire to obtain a better connection.

“It is a bit of an experiment” says Church.  “We’ve taken a cue from other campaigns that use crowd-sourced information to affect change. This is an opportunity for local residents to speak directly to the ISPs who can make investments based on these priorities.
