Cooling Centers To Be Open for Heat Relief Tonight

July 2, 2012

Mayor Paul Soglin announced that beginning at 9:00 PM tonight, the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center (main level ballroom) and Warner Park Recreation Center will remain open overnight to those in need of relief from the high temperatures. The Red Cross is providing staff, water, and cots. Please bring any necessary medication and medical equipment. Pets will not be allowed.

These facilities are only scheduled to be open tonight, Monday. Tomorrow the City of Madison will review weather conditions and make decisions as to which buildings to use if necessary for the rest of the week.
