Mayor Michael Pantelides announces that the Roger “Pip” Moyer Community Recreation Center, located at 273 Hilltop Lane, will open as a cooling center today, August 22nd, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
The National Weather Service is forecasting temperatures in the 90s, with the heat index reaching 102 degrees. The heat combined with high levels of humidity is creating a concern that residents may suffer from heat-related illnesses.
Individuals visiting the recreation center during those hours for the purpose of cooling off will not have access to recreation activities.
Anyone who needs to go to the cooling center, but does not have transportation can call the Office of Emergency Management at 410-216-9167. For more information, on the heat or heat related illness, call that same number.
