City Adjusting Operations Due to Extreme Heat

June 28, 2021 at 4:34 pm  Kamloops, Municipal, News

The City of Kamloops will be adjusting operations this week in an effort to protect workers from the risks of extreme heat. Effective Tuesday, June 29:

  • Mission Flats Landfill and the Kamloops Resource Recovery Centre will be open 7:00 am–12:00 pm noon on Tuesday and Wednesday. At this point, both facilities are scheduled to return to regular hours on Thursday, July 1. Visit Kamloops.ca/Landfills for regular hours of operation.
  • Spray parks will be open 9:00 am–8:00 pm for the rest of the week. 
  • The Sandman Centre cooling centre is open 10:00 am–9:00 pm and will be open on Canada Day.
  • Several capital projects and street projects have been shut down for the week, including Fleetwood Avenue, and 3rd Avenue projects. Other city staff working outdoors have significant work/rest requirements.
  • The McArthur Island Vaccination Clinic has been temporarily closed, as there is no air-conditioning in the building. Staff and patients have been transferred to the Tournament Capital Centre clinic.

The City will continue to monitor the forecast and may extend these measures accordingly. If you have any questions about the City’s operational adjustments, please call 250-828-3461.
