Town of Princeton to Open Cooling Stations This Week

cooling stationThe town of Princeton will offer a cooling station for residents from Tuesday, July 28th through Thursday, July 30th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to ensure that people have a safe place to stay cool during the expected heat wave.

Residents, especially senior citizens, are advised to take advantage of these cooling stations if needed, officials said. Cooling stations are air conditioned facilities where Princeton residents can find relief from the heat. Free water is accessible at all stations.

Stations:

Tuesday – Monument Hall Multipurpose Room (Downstairs)
One Monument Drive
Princeton, NJ 08540

Wednesday – Witherspoon Hall Community Room
400 Witherspoon Hall
Princeton, NJ 08540

Thursday – Witherspoon Hall Community Room

To stay safe and cool during heat advisories and warnings, officials say you should follow these tips:

• Stay indoors in air-conditioned spaces as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.

• Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible.

• Familiarize yourself with the medical conditions that can result from over-exposure to heat, including heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

• Avoid strenuous work during the warmest part of the day. Use a buddy system when working in extreme heat, and take frequent breaks.

• Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.

• Make sure pets have plenty of water and shade, be careful to not over-exercise them, and keep them indoors when it’s extremely hot.
