Take Care In The Heat (And Watch Out For Your Neighbors, Too)

In addition to this repost from June, the Sun-Times says: "During the weekend, city libraries, park facilities and police stations will also serve as cooling centers, city officials said. To learn more about cooling centers -- or how to get a ride to one -- call 311."

In this sudden intense hot weather, keep in mind your neighbors who might be housebound or infirm. If they (or you) are without air conditioning or electrical power, remember that there are cooling centers all around. Please take advantage of them! Call 311 if you or a neighbor need a ride to one.
