Cooling Station

The Salvation Army Logansport Citadel Corps, in partnership with EMA, will be making a cooling station available Tuesday, June 14 from 9a-4p at their facility on Wilkinson Street.

This is a place to set down, enjoy some AC, and get some water for those without.

Usage will be evaluated to determine if additional days or hours are needed.

This is also a great opportunity to visit area libraries, museum and other attractions that are open.

Heat advisory in effect from noon on Monday, June 13 until noon on Tuesday, June 14

Heat index values are forecast to exceed 100 degrees.

Heat index values will be around 100 to 105 Monday afternoon and then rise to between 100 and 110 Tuesday and Wednesday.

Excessive Heat Warning in effect from noon on Tuesday, June 14 until midnight on Thursday, June 16.

Dangerously hot conditions with heat index values up to 110 expected.

Extreme heat and humidity will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities.

Monitor the latest forecasts and warnings for updates on this situation. Be prepared to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9 1 1.
