Clarkstown Opens Cooling Centers

Clarkstown Opens Cooling Centers


(July 16, 2008) In conjunction with the Clarkstown Police Department’s Emergency Management Coordinator, Supervisor Alex Gromack has announced that the Town of Clarkstown has opened cooling centers for residents to go and cool down in the extremely hot weather.  The following cooling centers will be open Thursday, July 17th and Friday, July 18th.


Central Nyack Community Center, 58 Waldron Avenue       8am – 10pm

Congers Community Center, 6 Gilchrest Road                      8am – 10pm

Pascack Community Center, 87 New Clarkstown Road        8am – 10pm

Palisades Center Mall, Adler Community Room (4th floor)   10am – 9pm


The following are tips from the Rockland County Office of Fire and Emergency Services on staying cool during any heat warning:


·         Slow down.  Strenuous activities should be reduced or eliminated.

·         Dress for summer. 

·         Put less fuel on your inner fires.  Foods (like Proteins) that increase metabolic heat production also increase water loss.

·         Drink plenty of water or other non-alcohol fluids. 

·         Do not take salt tablets unless specified by a physician. Persons on salt restrictive should consult a physician before increasing their salt intake.

·         Spend more time in air-conditioned places. 

·         Do not get too much sun. 

·         Do not drink alcoholic beverages.


Availability of the cooling centers may be extended if the need arises.  For more information please call the Supervisor’s office at 845-639-2050.
