    As Summer Temperatures Soar, New York Opens Cooling Centers In Nassau And Suffolk Counties

    Summer can be a very fun time of the year, but it can also be dangerous. When things get too hot it is easier to experience heat exhaustion, dehydration, fatigue, and other heat-related ailments. In order to protect Long Islanders against these conditions, Nassau and Suffolk counties are opening cooling centers on designated days that offer citizens a place to go to cool off.

    Cooling centers are air-conditioned facilities to offer people relief from the heat when the heat index is predicted to be dangerously high. You should use a cooling center during a heat wave if you have no access to a cool environment, and particularly if you are at risk for heat-related illness.

    Cooling center facilities are managed by the New York State Department of Health, who determine each site’s hours of operation and level(s) of accessibility. For more information, contact a facility directly.
