The heat has gotten so out of hand according to Oklahoma City officials, that the churches in the city are going to be transformed into refuges from the heat. Currently, there are 25 cooling centers which have been operating since June 15 in Oklahoma City public buildings like the libraries and select YMCA branches. However, it simply isn’t enough.
While capacity isn’t a problem, the convenience level could be raised. By having more facilities available, residents are likely to have an option nearby, thereby serving more of the community. The Oklahoma City movers are aware that the temperatures are dangerously hot, so we are glad the city is taking further steps to look towards preventing heat related illnesses. Remember to always keep water with you and stay hydrated–it is hot out there and your body needs it!
