Cooling Centers Open During Heat Wave

St. Clair County wants to help residents avoid the excessive temperatures today, so there is a list available noting local cooling centers.  Most of the centers will be available until 5 p.m. Friday evening, but  Fort Gratiot Township Hall will stay open until 9:00 p.m., and Kimball Twp. Fire Station until midnight.  Most of the other cooling centers include branches of the St. Clair County Library System and will be available during the branch’s regular hours. A complete list can be found on the St. Clair County government Facebook page. Please observe safety measures by staying hydrated and avoiding over-exposure to heat and sun. Pets should not be left outside for long periods, and need extra hydration as well. This is also a good time to check in on your neighbors and relatives who don’t have central air conditioning.
