Milwaukee Health Department releases list of cooling sites in Milwaukee County

The Milwaukee Health Department is urging people to stay safe on Tuesday as it is expected to be hot and humid with a heat index reading of up to 105 degrees. Stay cool: slow down. Limit physical activity and try to spend part of your day in air-conditioned spaces such as malls, movie theaters or libraries. Never leave children or pets in a parked car. Temperatures can turn deadly in minutes. Wear light, loose, light-colored clothing. Take cool baths or showers and use damp towels on your skin to help cool you down. Don’t rely on fans as your primary cooling device. Check those most at risk twice a day. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day, no matter how thirsty you are. Avoid consuming caffeinated or alcoholic drinks, as they can increase the effects of the heat. Remind others to drink enough water. Cooling Centers: Cudahy Kelly Senior Center 6100 S.
