Summer’s here! While we all appreciate the extra sun and time outdoors, the summer weather brings challenges for vulnerable Edmontonians spending extended time outdoors.

Heatstroke/heat exhaustion

Sunburns & sun poisoning 

Being in poor air quality for an extended amount of time – too much smoke inhalation 

Bug bites 

Summer’s here!

While we all appreciate the extra sun and time outdoors, the summer weather brings challenges for vulnerable Edmontonians spending extended time outdoors. Folks who do not have access to shelter are at risk for developing health problems due to increased exposure of sunburn, heatstroke, dehydration and smoke inhalation. Everyone, regardless of housing status, deserves protection from harsh weather, and our Emergency Response Fund (ERF) is designed to meet these needs. 

Our ERF allows us the flexibility to act fast and efficiently to respond to the immediate needs of our community. When you make a monetary donation to our ERF, you help to ensure we have the necessary resources to keep our community safe during extreme summer weather. Whether it’s providing water to stay hydrated or sunscreen to prevent sunburns, our ERF focuses on preventing additional challenges for our vulnerable community members.
