Thermometer reading in NW Moncton, 24 July 2016 (Dearing)

The New Brunswick Department of Health issued a Level 1 Heat Alert for Greater Moncton, Miramichi and Fredericton today.

A very warm day with a high of 29 C could lead to humidex values of 35 of more – prompting a heat alert from the province.

The system was rolled out to all major cities in New Brunswick this summer after a successful pilot project in Fredericton.

New Brunswickers are urged to take precautions to keep cool such as seeking shade or air conditioning, drinking lots of liquids, checking on those most vulnerable and never leaving children or pets in vehicles.
