As temperatures continue in the 90s and the “feels like” temperature approaches 100 degrees, Lockport residents can get some relief in two cooling stations.
Lockport Police Department has designated its community room as a cooling station as needed for residents.
Before heading over to the police department, call the non-emergency number at 815-838-2131 to speak with a member of the telecommunications staff so that the department can ensure that the facility is staffed.
The Lockport Township Fire Protection District’s Station No. 6 training room is also available for the purposes of a cooling center during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
WESCOM has also been advised regarding the availability of the Lockport Township Fire Protection District’s cooling center for area residents.
