Columbus Recreation and Parks To Open Certain Centers Early Wednesday to Continue To Help Neighborhoods Beat the Heat

Columbus Recreation and Parks will continue to provide regular activities at community centers to give residents a place to cool off during Wednesday’s forecasted extreme heat. Five community centers will be open early beginning at 9 a.m.

 

All other community centers will be open regular hours

Seniors in need of fans should contact LifeCare Alliance at 614-278-3130.

Columbus Public Health reminds residents of ways to stay healthy and safe in hot weather:

·  Drink plenty of water – do not wait until you are thirsty.

·  Stay inside in air conditioning whenever possible.  If you do not have an air conditioner, use movie theatres, malls, libraries and other public places that are cool.

·  Avoid beverages with alcohol, caffeine and sugar because they will dehydrate you.

·  Eat light meals.

·  Wear lightweight, light colored clothing and a hat.

·  Stay in the shade.

·  Limit your outdoor activity to morning and evening hours.
