The Maynard Emergency Management team reminds everyone that hot temperatures combined with high humidity levels are expected to create dangerous heat conditions, with the most oppressive conditions expected Saturday.
Due to the extreme heat forecast for the weekend, the Police Station and the meeting rooms at both Powder Mill Circle and Concord Street Circle will be open 24/7 on Saturday and Sunday as cooling centers for those that need a place to cool off.
MEMA urges residents to take precautions during the upcoming extreme heat. Never leave children or pets alone in a closed vehicle, stay hydrated, dress in loose-fitting clothing, stay out of the sun as much as possible, especially during peak midday hours, and watch for heat-related illnesses.
As always, check on your family, friends, and neighbors, especially the elderly, to make sure they are safe during this extreme heat – thank you.
