TIFFIN, OH — The City of Tiffin is partnering with Tiffin-Seneca United Way to open cooling centers at several locations as high temperatures are predicted for the next few days. There will be three locations available to the public.
The Salvation Army will host a cooling center starting Friday, July 19 from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. This center will open again on Monday, July 22 and will be open throughout the week. Their address is 505 E. Market Street.
The Allen Eiry Senior Center is also the location of a cooling center. They will be open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, July 19-21. Their address is 28 Hopewell Ave.
The Tiffin-Seneca Public Library is the final location. They will be open their regular hours from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm on Friday and Saturday, July 19 and 20. Their address is 77 Jefferson Street.
Currently, the city does not have any overnight accommodations for cooling centers, but officials encourage people to use good judgement as to whether they need to leave their homes, and go to a friend, or family member’s home until the heat emergency has passed.
The public is encouraged to stay cool and to stay hydrated. For more information on the cooling centers, contact Tiffin-Seneca United Way at 419-448-0355.
