As of Monday, July 25, 2022, Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for the City of Delta and surrounding areas in the Lower Mainland. Stage 1 of Delta’s Heat Response Plan has been activated, which includes disseminating information to the public about how to stay safe in the heat and a list of our air-conditioned facilities that are currently open, in addition to staffing of Delta’s Beat the Heat telephone hotline – 604-946-3200.
City staff will be coordinating with community partners on available services and resources to support unsheltered and vulnerable individuals in Delta during this period of increased temperatures. The current heat wave is forecasted to have daytime high temperatures ranging from 31 to 35 degrees Celsius inland and 25 to 29 degrees Celsius near the water and is expected to last through the week.
If the Heat Warning criteria continue to be met over the next few days where there is a substantive increase in temperatures over three or more consecutive days, the City of Delta is prepared to activate an Extreme Heat Emergency alert. Three of Delta’s cooling centres and the Beat the Heat hotline will transition to 24/7 operation, with seniors busses supporting transportation needs to our air-conditioned facilities.
