To help those in need of heat relief, The Fanwood Police Department has designated The Chelsea Senior Living Center located at 295 South Ave. in Fanwood as a Cooling Station. 

Anyone who needs transportation to the Cooling Station may call the Fanwood Police Department at (908) 322-5000 and officers will make arrangements for transportation.

When visiting a relief station, bring any medications and/or specialty items that you may need. Residents and visitors are urged to limit exposure outside, particularly during the hottest part of the day - roughly from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. 

Those who must be outside should take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water.

High body temperatures and dehydration will make other medical conditions such as heart and breathing problems much worse. It is very important to stay cool and hydrated when the heat index reaches these dangerous levels.

Please check on your elderly neighbors, and advise them of the cooling station at the Chelsea and remind them to remain hydrated and to contact the Fanwood Police Department in the event of an emergency.
