Anticipating Extreme Heat: Cooling Shelters Open in Hammond

CATEGORY: Mayor's Office, News

Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott has announced that due to the extreme heat expected this week the City of Hammond will utilize all park department buildings as cooling centers. Individuals may use these facilities during regular operating hours if necessary, to cool down from temperatures that are predicted to remain high through Thursday.

“I call on residents to check in on their neighbors, especially senior citizens who are most adversely affected by high heat. Neighborly care can go a long way in avoiding a tragic situation from occurring.”
