Heat Events

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 will

be 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
