Time to Cool Off

Everyone here at HSP agrees that the scorching temperatures and humidity have been a huge concern for our seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. With temperatures in the 90s for many days, Seniors may be finding the weather too hot to handle without air conditioning.

HSP is trying to relieve some of this discomfort by calling our seniors in the programs and directing them to cooling sites across the county. In addition to directing seniors to cooling sites, HSP has also purchased fans for our seniors in the case that they are unable to get to a cooling site and the heat is causing them additional distress.

If you find yourself in need of a place to get cool, please contact us at HSP and we can give you a phone number and direct you to a cooling site near you. Remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, stay out of the sun and if it is necessary to be outdoors be sure to wear a hat and continue to put on sunscreen.
