GEORGETOWN, Del.-Sussex County officials are reminding the community of cooling stations in select county facilities as a major heat wave is expected for the region. 

The four designated cooling stations are the County Administration Building in Georgetown, the Greenwood Library, the Milton Library and the South Coastal Library. 

County officials say that the select county facilities are always available
as “cooling stations” in the summer during their regular business hours, offering
the public a respite from the heat and humidity.

Sussex County paramedics will make routine stops at these locations, as time
permits, to answer any heat-related questions and/or concerns.

Free individual servings of bottled water will be available at the County Administration Building only to help the public cool off from the heat.

When visiting a relief station, bring any medications and/or specialty items that you need. 

County officials urge residents and visitors to limit time outside, particularly from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., the hottest part of the day. If you must be outside officials are advising frequent breaks, and to drink plenty of water. 

For more information, call the EOC at 302-855-7801 or Sussex County
EMS at 302-854-5050.
