As the weather heats up, here are some tips about staying safe on a hot day:

  • Stay in an air-conditioned indoor location as much as you can.
  • Drink plenty of fluids even if you don’t feel thirsty.
  • Schedule outdoor activities carefully.
  • Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing and sunscreen.
  • Pace yourself.
  • Check on a friend or neighbor and have someone do the same for you.
  • Take cool showers or baths to cool down.
  • Never leave children or pets in cars.

If you need somewhere to cool off, the City's splash pads are open at the following locations:

  • Fichtner-Mainwaring (334 Holmes Avenue)
  • Hawthorne (501 East Main Street)
  • Lewis (130 Lewis Avenue)
