Buffalo, NY –Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced the City of Buffalo will open three cooling centers on Saturday, June 30th and Sunday, July 1st,  to aid persons who are suffering from the heat and do not have access to air-conditioned space. Mayor Brown cited the National Weather Service’s forecast of temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s, combined with high humidity, for his decision to open the centers.

“The combination of near-record high temperatures and extremely high humidity, will result in “real feel” conditions that feel like triple digits. These conditions will be particularly difficult for our elderly and young children,” Mayor Brown said. “It’s important for all our residents to take the necessary precautions to stay cool and hydrated, and please keep an eye on your vulnerable neighbors.”

The cooling centers located at Autumnwood Senior Center, 1800 Clinton St., and the Richmond/Summer Senior Center, will be open both Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The center at the Broadway Market Senior Drop-In Center, will be open Saturday onlyfrom 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Mayor Brown previously announced the City will open seven of its outdoor swimming pools and two wading pools at 11 a.m. this Saturday, June 30th.  Traditionally, City pool season runs from July 1st through Labor Day.

The decision to open the pools a day early was also based on the sweltering weekend weather forecast.
