Cooling Center for Community OPEN

A cooling center has been set up at the Meskwaki Tribal Center for community members needing an air-conditioned space to temporarily deal with the health effects of the heatwave hitting our area this week.

With the excessive heat expected to persist all week, the Meskwaki Tribal Center gym will remain open as needed. The gym will be closed for recreational purposes until Friday.  If you do not have access to air conditioning, please go to the gym for assistance.

All are reminded to drink plenty of fluids, avoid strenuous outdoor activity during the heat of the day, and check on relatives, neighbors, the elderly and your pets.  Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location and call 911.
