With some extreme heat hitting Regina over the next few days, the City wants to let people know of places where they can keep cool, stay hydrated and stay safe.
There are numerous places that can assist with you in efforts to cool down
City buses also provide a safe and cool place for anyone who needs immediate shelter or emergency services. If the heat is getting to you, flag down one of our Regina Transit buses and our friendly operators will help you out.
