BLOOMFIELD, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Update: A second center has been added.

Two temporary cooling centers have been opened in Greene County in response to the high temperatures throughout the area.

The first is located in the North Shelter House in Bloomfield Park. It will be available Tuesday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The second will be in the First Christian Church in Bloomfield. Located at 80 South Jefferson in the church’s fellowship hall, this center will be open Wednesday through Saturday from noon until 6 p.m.

Roger Axe, director of Greene Co. Emergency Management says it’s important during these high temperatures.

“It’s very important if we got people that are at risk. Maybe the elderly, the young, people with chronic conditions, medical conditions if for some reason they don’t have access to air conditioning,” Axe said.

Axe also asks residents to be aware of spending too much time in the heat. If you’re no longer sweating, it could be a sign of a heat stroke.
