Schedule For Beacon's Cooling Centers This Weekend During The Heat Wave


The City of Beacon has put out a schedule of Designated Cooling Centers for this weekend, July 19 to July 21. The list is below.

If you see someone who needs assistance, possibly point them in the direction of the nearest Cooling Center, or call the Beacon Police to get assistance to help move them there. We have encountered people in electric wheelchairs that have dead batteries, and were thankful when the Beacon Police intervened to help to move this person to a better place.

Be mindful of dogs in cars, people in cars (overheating in a car can happen fast during heat waves, so be careful), dogs outside, hot pavement, etc.
