[ARCHIVED] Mayor Brown Announces the Opening of “Cooling Centers” for Those in Need of Relief from the Heat



Buffalo, NY –With significant heat and humidity in the forecast for this weekend, Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced the opening of several cooling centers on both Saturday and Sunday to aid City residents who are suffering from the heat and do not have access to air-conditioned space. Mayor Brown cited the National Weather Service’s forecast, calling for “oppressively warm and humid” conditions.

“With the season’s hottest weather expected to settle over Buffalo this weekend, we’re asking residents to protect themselves and other from the potential effects of extreme heat,” said Mayor Brown. “Please avoid strenuous activity, stay hydrated, stay inside whenever possible, and please keep an eye on your vulnerable neighbors.”

Several air-conditioned cooling centers will be open this weekend in Buffalo. Residents can also cool off at City pools and splash pads.
