The City of Lansing has noted a 'CONDITION ORANGE: HEAT ALERT'

Officials suggest that with the expectation of high temperatures and humid conditions again today, cooling centers will open and everyone is encouraged to spend at least part of the day in a cool place.

Those who will be enjoying outdoor activities should remember to:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Avoid being in the full sun for long periods of time
  • Wear light colored clothing
  • Use plenty of sunscreen

Don’t forget to take care of pets during extreme heat events as well. Make sure they have plenty of water and a cool place to rest.

Free rides to cooling centers are available to those with a physical and financial need through CATA, EATRAN and Clinton Area Transit.

For information about cooling centers or to find out if they are eligible for a free ride residents should dial 2‐1‐1.
