Heat Events

Posted on Sunday, June 04, 2017
The City of Hamilton Public Health Department monitors weather forecasts closely and notifies

the media and community partners of a heat event. A heat event occurs when the forecast calls
for one or more days with a 40 or higher humidex reading. Once HWDSB
has been notified of a heat event, information will be posted on our website and the following precautionary steps willbe taken for students:
  • Limit physical outdoor activities
  • Ensure access to water
  • Close drapes and blinds
  • Move students through cooler areas of the school
  • Monitor students for symptoms of heat stress
