Cooling Stations

“As we move into the summer months, it is very important that our residents take the steps necessary to stay safe and prevent heat related illnesses,” said Ronald E. Gill Jr., Director, Prince George’s County Office of Emergency Management. “Stay hydrated and drink water often, minimize outdoor activities and remember to check on your neighbors, especially the elderly, and on your pets to ensure that they do not fall victim to the heat.”
