Cooling Centers opened around Greater Danbury area

Cooling Centers are being opened around the Greater Danbury area as the state enters a second day of extreme heat. 

Newtown Emergency Management and the Health District are offering information to prevent people from becoming victims of the heat during these days of extreme high temperatures.  The Newtown Municipal Center is open as a cooling center during the week 7am to 5pm and CH Booth Library is open today, tomorrow and Thursday 9:30am to 7pm.  Residents are asked to call the Newtown Community Center to be sure the timing of their visit can be properly accommodated. 

Newtown First Selectman Dan Rosenthal encouraged residents to check on elderly or frail neighbors to be sure they're doing ok during this weather.  The local health district notes that heat-related illness has some common symptoms to watch for, including headache, cramps, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, mental confusion, dry or red spotted skin and weakness.

New Milford opened Town Hall's Loretta Brickely Room to the public yesterday.  Brookfield library, senior center and Greenknoll YMCA are open as cooling centers during normal business hours.
