High heat and humidity can be a dangerous combination for older adults and individuals with disabilities. With the weather forecast for the next few days, we remind older adults that they can reduce the risk of heat-related illness by spending even a few hours in air-conditioned places like shopping malls, public libraries or senior centers. The Area Office on Aging has identified the following emergency cooling centers. These air conditioned facilities can offer seniors some relief from the oppressive heat and humidity.
