July 2019
High Heat Alert
A High Heat Alert has been issued for Niagara. The City wants to remind residents and visitors that indoor cooling stations are available around the City. These stations are free and open to everyone during operating hours. The City’s pools and splash pads are also a great, fun way to cool off outside.

During High Heat Alerts, Niagara Falls Transit offers free fare to riders travelling to/from an official cooling station within the City. Simply indicate to your driver that you are traveling to a cooling station and your fare will be covered.

Be sure to take extra precautions during the extreme heat. Don't leave infants, children or pets in a parked car, & take a moment to check on elderly or shut-in neighbours.

View more information on the City's indoor and outdoor cooling stations.
