 “It is going to be very hot this week. The air quality is going to be very dangerous especially for those without air conditioning; the elderly, children and those with health issues.”
The mayor pointed out, “there are about 425 cooling center we have open around the city for those who need them. Relief from the heat with locations can be obtained by going to www.NYC.gov or call by calling 311.” As he has often told New Yorkers before,  “and remember to check in on family and friends, especially seniors. Make sure to care for pets during this heat wave since heat can be very dangerous for pets.” Mayor Bloomberg concluded by saying, “so use common sense. It’s going to be a hot week and its also going to be a very fun week.”
