Mayor Steven M. Fulop and the Jersey City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) have announced that three cooling centers will remain open through the weekend of August 1st & 2nd. Temperatures are expected to remain in the 90s for the next several days. As long as temperatures continue to exceed 90 degrees, which could last until early next week, the cooling centers will remain open.
The Mary McLeod Bethune Community Center, 140 Martin Luther King Drive, will be open this Saturday and Sunday from from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., while both the Joseph Connors Senior Center, at 28 Paterson Street, and the Maureen Collier Senior Center, at 335 Bergen Avenue, will be open Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
In addition to the Cooling Centers, The Jersey City Free Public Library and its local branches are also available to residents. Locations and hours here.
All residents, especially the elderly, disabled people, pregnant women and children under the age of two are encouraged to STAY INDOORS or take advantage of the cooling facilities if necessary.
“We are anticipating several days of high heat and humidity and will be opening our cooling centers for residents who need a place to find relief,” said Mayor Fulop. “Residents are reminded to check on seniors and neighbors who may need assistance, and to take advantage of our park sprinklers and pools, which are great places for children and families to cool off.”
In addition, all City parks and pools are open for residents to enjoy. For a full schedule of pool and sprinkler locations, please visit: http://jerseycitynj.gov/swimming/sprinklers/
