Extreme Hot Weather Protocol Implemented

Connecticut will continue to experience very hot and humid temperatures over the next several days, prompting the activation of the state’s Extreme Hot Weather Protocol through 5PM on Wednesday. Cooling centers are open statewide and can be located by calling 2-1-1 or visiting www.211ct.org. The protocol ensures that state agencies and municipalities coordinate with United Way 2-1-1 to provide information on cooling centers as well. Stay safe by keeping cool, staying hydrated, and checking on the elderly, and don’t forget about your pets.
