Three senior centers will stay open till 6 p.m. Friday and will open Saturday to provide spots to get away from the excessive heat and humidity.
The Lower Bucks Senior Center, 301 Wood St., Bristol Borough; the Bristol Township Senior Center, 2501 Bath Rd.; and the Pennridge Senior Center, 146 E. Main St., Silverdale, will stay open an extra 2½ hours Friday and will open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, the county information office said Thursday.
Seniors age 60 and older who do not have a fan or air conditioner may be able to get a fan from the Area Agency on Aging. Seniors also can get help by calling the agency at 267-880-5700 during this period of extreme heat.
Extreme hot weather can cause serious heat-related illnesses such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion, and seniors are especially vulnerable, the agency said.
