Bergen County has established 4 regional cooling centers throughout the county to help residents stay cool during the current heat wave. The centers will be open today, Tuesday, June 18th, through Friday, June 21st, from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Residents requiring a ride to a County emergency cooling center may call 201-394-2882 during between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Emergency requests may be arranged after hours by dialing 201-707-1082.

The Haworth Swim Club will be open tomorrow, Wednesday, June 19,  from 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm.  If we can staff the pools Thursday or Friday, we will let you know. Otherwise, the swim club opens for the full season this Saturday, June 22, at 11:00 am.

It is recommended that residents stay indoors, if possible, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. when the sun is at its strongest and burns and heat strokes are more likely to occur.  All age groups are at risk for heat stroke so please take necessary precautions if you have to be outdoors, including wearing sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses and staying properly hydrated.

It is NOT okay to leave a child or pet in a locked vehicle even for a moment as temperatures can rise quite quickly.  It is also imperative to lock all parked vehicles so children cannot accidentally lock themselves inside while playing games like hide and seek. 


Be smart, Be Safe!!
