Heat Wave Precautions – Week of August 11, 2021
August 11, 2021
Dear Cedars Tenants & Families,
In response to the heat wave impacting our region, we have put several measures in place as part of our emergency preparedness plan, to ensure the health and safety of our residents/tenants.
As such, we are closely working with Fraser Health leadership to address heat-related challenges and access support and resources, including air conditioning devices.
To protect our residents/tenants, we are proactively monitoring them for signs of heat-related conditions and mitigating their risk in the following ways:
• Ensuring they are regularly hydrated;
• Providing cooling cloths;
• Using fans/air conditioning devices;
• Closing blinds and ensuring residents/tenants are wearing light-weight clothing.
Once the heat warning has ended, we will work with Fraser Health leadership to re-evaluate our approach.
If you have any specific questions about your resident/tenant, please contact Tia Everitt, Executive Director or Maria Litjens, Manager of Care at 604-826-2194.
