Cooling Centers To Open In Wicomico Co. To Beat The Heat

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Wicomico County officials are set to open up cooling centers to help beat the heat.

Starting Wednesday, July 17th through Friday, July 19th, Wicomico County residents can take shelter from extreme heat at one of two locations: Wicomico Youth and Civic Center and the MAC Center.

The Civic Center cooling center will be open 11 AM to 8 PM. Officials say no pets will be permitted. Residents will need to bring their own food, beverages, and medications.

The MAC Senior Center will also be opened Wednesday through Friday for all individuals over the age of 50 who need shelter from the extreme heat. Residents do not need to be affiliated to go to the MAC Center. The center's hours of operation have been extended until 8 PM.

"We want people to have a place to go if they don't have air conditioning, if they're just tired and they feel threatened by the heat and if they can't find a place to go to get out of it and be comfortable," said Rick Pollitt, Wicomico Co. executive.

Pollitt says that anyone needing free transportation to the Civic Center or the MAC Senior Center should call Shore Transit at 443-260-2300.
