The City of Montreal extends pool hours and opens cooling centres

On this fourth day of extreme heat, the City of Montreal has designated 108 public areas as cooling-off centres and has extended the opening hours of some 200 public swimming pools and made them free of charge for the duration of the heat wave.

Community health clinics, as well as the Montreal police and fire departments will be working together to identify and contact potentially vulnerable seniors living alone, and will be going door to door in at-risk areas to let people know what services are available.
