When summertime temperatures rise, those without air conditioning in their homes can beat the heat at six cooling centers in Fulton County.
In Archbold, the Fulton County Health Department named St. John’s Christian Church as a cooling center, where people can seek respite from the heat.
In a press release, health department officials report the Church is open from 8 am to 9 pm, Monday through Friday.
There are four cooling centers open in Wauseon: Crossroads Evangelical Church, North Clinton Church, the Wauseon Public Library, and the Fulton County Senior Center.
Those who need transportation to a cooling center are asked to call 2-1-1.
Two agencies are providing transportation services. The Fulton County Senior Center, 419-337-9299, provides transportation for seniors.
The Fulton County Department of Job & Family Services, 419-337-0010, has transportation available for families with minor children who meet income guidelines.
