In response to the National Weather Service’s (NWS) issuance of a Heat Advisory Warning, the City of Ferndale will offer the Kulick Center as a community cooling center.
The cooling center will be open to the public Thursday and Friday, July 21 and 22, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. The Heat Advisory begins at 1:00 p.m. Thursday and remains in effect until 10:00 p.m. Friday.
NWS is predicting temperatures in the mid 90s paired with high humidity, which is capable of producing heat indexes of 100 degrees or greater. People who spend time outdoors will be susceptible to dehydration and heat-related illness. Those without air conditioning and/or access to water may also be subject to heat stress.
