The Wareham Local Emergency Planning Committee would like to remind residents that the Multi-Service Center located at 48 Marion Road is open Monday through Friday 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM. The Center can be used to cool off during the period of excessive heat. The elderly, infants, children, and people with chronic medical conditions are most prone to heat stress. Air-conditioning is the best defense against heat related illness, so it is recommended you stay in locations with air-conditioning, such as a shopping center or other public location. Remember to drink cool, nonalcoholic beverages and to increase fluid intake, regardless of your activity level.
