"This heat wave we are going to experience poses a risk to some of New Haven's most vulnerable populations.  As such, I have directed City agencies to immediately open and activate cooling centers today and tomorrow.  Seniors that are having issues with the heat should contact the City or check the City website for the nearest cooling center," DeStefano said, also in the statement. 

The city also noted: those attending a cooling location should bring lunch or snacks as no food will be served at these sites. Seniors are reminded that senior centers require 24 hour notice for senior meals.
