Timony School available for cooling

METHUEN — Mayor Stephen Zanni says the Timony School will be opened as a cooling center if widespread power outages occur during the current heatwave.

“I brought National Grid and our Public Safety team together to make sure we are ready to respond to our residents if power outages occur,” Zanni said yesterday.

Zanni also announced that Forest Lake will be open and manned by lifeguards until 7 each night through Sunday, allowing residents to remain cool.

After meeting with his team, Mayor Zanni issued a heat advisory reminding residents to stay safe as the City experiences an extended high heat index. Residents are reminded to stay hydrated and in shaded or air conditioned areas whenever possible. It is important for all residents, particularly children and seniors, to take precautions.

For questions about heat-related city services, residents should call the police department at 978-983-8677. Additional information is available on the City’s social media pages on Twitter and Facebook. In the event of an emergency, residents should absolutely dial 911.
