The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for our area, with temperatures near or over 100 degrees forecast through Thursday. The potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities is high. Please take precautions. Stay hydrated and check on vulnerable friends and neighbors. Public areas with air conditioning can provide relief and keep you from becoming overheated.
The City of Springfield and Willamalane Park and Recreation District have several resources available to help people keep cool; please check their websites for additional information. For other human services information, dial 2-1-1 or visit 211info.org
