Chatham Cooling Center
In the event of a prolonged heat wave when there is a need for a Cooling Center, the Chatham Town Hall at 549 Main Street, Chatham will be designated as the location for a Town Cooling Center during normal business hours. Should Chatham residents and/or visitors have a need for a cooling center, please contact the Chatham Police or Chatham Fire non-emergency numbers at 508-945-1213 or 508-945-2324, and preparations will be made by Chatham Emergency Management to open and staff the cooling center at such time.
During a heat wave, citizens should limit strenuous outdoor activities, stay properly hydrated, and avoid direct sunlight where possible. Anyone experiencing heat related symptoms should seek medical help immediately.
