Heatwaves and Cooling Spaces

Staying cool is hard especially when the Toronto Cooling centres were cancelled. Psych meds (including lithium) are risks for dehydration and worse. Homelessness and social isolation are probably the biggest danger. Would you be willing to occupy government spaces to stay cool? Historical context – survivors have been dying for a long time.
Be especially careful if you experience the following symptoms from heat. You might want to call 911 or see a doctor:

  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Headache
  • Rapid breathing and heartbeat
  • Extreme thirst.
