Dear Neighbor,

Temperatures are expected to rise close to 100 degrees this weekend. Let's work together to take proper precautions to stay safe and cool in our community.
The NYC Office of Emergency Management offers great resources on their website, Beat The Heat. Check out some of their tips to #BeatTheHeat:
  1. Find a Cooling Center-the public has access to over 500 cooling center across New York City. If you or your loved ones do not have access to a cool environment, you should locate the nearest cooling center. Cooling centers in the district include
    George Bruce Branch Library - New York Public Library,
    Morningside Heights Library, and
    Bloomingdale Branch Library. Call 311 (TTY: 212-504-4115) or visit NYC Emergency Management's Cooling Center Finder at to find a center near you!
  2. Be a Good Neighbor-be sure to check up on the elderly, young children, and people at risk of heat-related illnesses.
  3. Protect yourself-wear sunscreen and protective clothing when outside. If possible, stay out of the sun during peak heat hours between 11AM-4PM. 
  4. Don't forget your pets-remember to give your pets plenty of clean, fresh water and avoid exercising them during the hottest hours in the day. 
  5. Seek help-if you think you or someone you know maybe be experiencing symptoms of heat illness, such as trouble breathing, rapid heartbeat, or nausea and vomiting, call a doctor or 911.
