Heat Warning in Effect


The Public Safety Division of the Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke would like to inform the community that a Heat Warning is in effect for our region. Tomorrow (Wednesday), the daytime high is expected to reach 30 �C (86 �F) with humidex values of 40 �C (104 �F). The hot and humid weather is expected to continue throughout the week.

Drinking plenty of water to keep your body hydrated is very important (avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol as these cause dehydration).

Please keep the following in mind:

  • Ensure all family members are aware of the consequences of high heat and humidity.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink water even if you don�t feel thirsty.
  • Frequently check on the elderly, young, and sick as they are more susceptible to suffering from the effects of high heat and humidity.
  • Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest time of the day
  • Take frequent breaks if working outside
  • Be aware of the signs of Heat Cramps, Heat Exhaustion, and Heat Stroke


The victim′s skin is hot, red, and could be sweating. The body temperature is very high, sometimes as high as 105 degrees. Heat exhaustion could lead to a life-threatening emergency and requires prompt action. Summon professional help. Get the victim into a cool place.

If you have any questions or for more information, please call the Public Safety Unit at 450-632-0635. For emergencies, call the Peacekeepers at 450-632-6505.
