Due to hot weather, the city of Atlantic City has opened a cooling center.

The cooling center, located in the All Wars Memorial Building at 1510 Adriatic Avenue in Atlantic City, will be open from 10AM to 6PM. Local residents are invited to stop in, stay cool, and relax during the hot weather.

Excessive heat is especially dangerous to the elderly and very young. Use common sense to avoid heat related illnesses: drink plenty of water, wear light-colored and loose-fitting clothing, wear a hat, and take frequent breaks in a cool location.
