Temperatures are climbing, and safety experts say it's time to take precautions against heat-related illness. During a heat advisory, like the one issued Thursday, the Springfield-Greene County Park Board offers "cooling centers." KSMU's Jennifer Davidson has details.
Springfield is opening its doors to air-conditioned buildings for those who don’t have another way to keep cool. Those cooling centers are:
· The Chesterfield Family Center lobby, at 2511 West Republic Road
· The Dan Kinney Family Center lobby, at 2701 South Blackman Road
· The Doling Family Center Lobby, at 310 East Talmage Street.
Those three locations are open from 5:00 am until 10:00 pm on weekdays.
Also, the upper and lower lobby of the Medicacom Ice Park will act as a cooling center from 10:00 am to 8:30 pm on weekdays. That’s at 635 East Trafficway.
Seating is available at all four locations.
