Livingston County Department of Health Offering Free Cooling Spots in Response to Heat Advisory


GENESEO, N.Y., July 28, 2023 – The Livingston County Department of Health is advising New Yorkers to take precautions as a heat advisory has been issued for the region for Friday, July 28, 2023.  In an effort to provide residents with relief, the County is providing two cooling centers that are free and open to the public.

During a heat wave, it is important to stay hydrated, stay inside or in the shade and have proper forms of cooling such as a fan or air conditioner. If you don’t have a cooling system, or cannot find one, local libraries and malls are a great place to go. Below is a list of cooling centers in Livingston County, which are open on July 28 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.:

  • Livingston County Government Center - Conference Room 106, 6 Court Street, Geneseo, N.Y.
  • Avon Town Hall - Conference Room B, 74 Genesee Street. Avon, N.Y.

Heat-related illness can occur when the body is unable to cool itself, leading to rising body temperatures. Those at greatest risk for heat-related illness include infants and children up to four years of age, people 65 years of age and older, people who are overweight and people who are ill or on certain medications. Not all heat related illness is heat stroke. Signs of heat stroke include:

  • An extremely high body temperature (above 103°F)
  • Red, hot and dry skin (no sweating)
  • Rapid, strong pulse
  • Throbbing headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Confusion
  • Unconsciousness

If you suspect someone is suffering from heat stroke, contact emergency services immediately. For more information on heat safety, contact 585-243-7270 or visit the Livingston County Department of Health’s website.
