July 20, 2015, with heat indices expected to range from 100 to 104 degrees today, the public is invited to escape the heat by visiting the Worcester County Recreation Center (WCRC) in Snow Hill as well as any of the five Worcester County branch libraries, located in Ocean City, Ocean Pines, Berlin, Snow Hill and Pocomoke, during standard operating hours.
The WCRC is open Monday – Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and closed Saturday and Sunday. Residents are invited to relax on the retractable bleachers, which can comfortably accommodate up to 520 people, and watch the competition as area youth learn and practice new track skills on the four-lane competitive track. For more information, call Recreation and Parks at 410-632-2144.
For library branch hours of operation, contact the Worcester County Library at (410) 632-2600 or visit www.worcesterlibrary.org.
Worcester County Emergency Services urges residents to drink plenty of fluids, avoid alcohol and caffeine, and take frequent breaks from stressful activities to avoid becoming dehydrated and overheated, which can lead to heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
