Mission, BC—As the summer continues, four temporary cooling centres will be available to provide relief for residents when the temperature reaches 29°C.

“With the hot weather here, it’s important that Mission has a place to cool off and rehydrate for the people who need it,” said Mayor Pam Alexis. “These cooling centres keep people safe from the risks of extreme heat.”

The District of Mission annually coordinates cooling centres during extreme heat events. This year, visitors are reminded to adhere to all COVID-19 safety protocols when dropping into a cooling centre, such as practicing good physical distancing and staying away if feeling sick.

Cooling centres are available only during heat alerts when temperatures hit greater than or equal to 29°C, and will take place at the following locations:
