Given the extreme heat we are experiencing in Nelson, the City is providing two dedicated cooling centres to the community this week. If you, or someone you know needs a place to cool off and would like some respite from the heat, please go to a cooling centre or another airconditioned facility, such as a retailer or friend's home.
Again, we ask that you check in with your neighbours, especially seniors or those with disabilities, to ensure they are safe.
If you are experiencing symptoms of heat stroke, please call 9-1-1.
11:00am - 7:00pm (Monday - Friday)
For Seniors - Seniors Centre at 717 Vernon Street
General Public - Curling Club Lounge at 302 Cedar Street
