Faced with the heat wave that is hitting several Brazilian cities, including the capital of São Paulo, the city of São Paulo created Operation High Temperatures to assist people in vulnerable situations.
This Tuesday (19), a statement from the administration advises the population to seek out the reception network, to protect themselves from the sun and stay hydrated, and announces the installation of ten tents throughout the municipality.
These spaces will have a water supply and the presence of an ambulance to respond to cases of heat exposure. The locations where the tents will be installed have not been announced.
The reported measures also involve the purchase of more fans for reception units.
The group involves the municipal departments of Social Assistance and Development (SMADS), Health, Human Rights and Citizenship (SMDHC), Government and Climate Change Executive (SECLIMA).
“The referral to the social assistance network’s reception services is made according to the individual’s profile and the type of service, respecting the history of the person or family to be welcomed”, adds the city hall.
Homeless people are referred to reception services through Social Assistance Reference Centers (CRAS), Specialized Social Assistance Reference Centers (CREAS), Specialized Reference Centers for Homeless Populations (POP Centers) , the Specialized Service in Social Approach (SEAS) and Ampara SP.
Currently, the capital has more than 25 thousand reception places for homeless people, distributed in reception centers, social hotels, adult residences, reunion villages and emergency services of Operation Low Temperatures.
