The Somerset County Library is providing the community a space to cool down during recent hot weather conditions for those who may not have access to air conditioning.
From the Somerset County Health Department Website:
“With temperatures in the upper 90’s and heat index forecasted over 100 degrees, the following sites will be open this week in Somerset County to help residents stay cool.
Residents should take their own food, beverages, and medications to the cooling centers. Pets are not allowed.
The Somerset County Emergency Management and the Somerset County Health Department urge area residents to take the heat seriously and to take appropriate steps to stay safe. Remember to drink more fluids, but avoid alcohol and high sugar drinks. When going out, never leave anyone, especially infants or young children, or animals in a closed, parked vehicle for even a few minutes. Residents are urged to check on their neighbors especially the elderly and those without air conditioning. For more information about extreme heat and more tips on how to stay cool, visit www.cdc.gov/extremeheat, www.somersethd.org or www.facebook.com/somersethd.”
