Extreme Heat Warning - Cooling Center

Heat

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning until Sunday, July 21, 2019, 8:00 PM.

The Town of Stoughton has partnered with the Old Colony YMCA of Stoughton, located at 445 Central Street, to open a Cooling Center for the excessive heat event on Saturday and Sunday from 12-7PM. Residents must bring a valid ID.

We encourage residents to utilize this resource if needed to have access to air-conditioning and charging mobile devices.

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose-fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
