State officials are urging residents to use the state’s resources to help stay safe as temperatures are expected to soar this week.
Gov. Ned Lamont tweeted out that the National Weather Service has issued heat advisories for most of the state from today to Wednesday.
He says that the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security is coordinating with towns and cities to open cooling centers.
For more information on cooling centers, you can call 211 or visit the state’s Extreme Hot Weather webpage.
If there isn’t a cooling center in your town, your town library, senior center or other public locations are good spots to get some relief.
If you plan on swimming to cool off, there's also a list of swimming facilities on the state website.
There is also contact information for your utility provider if you lose power.
