As the weather heats up across the area, Detroit has announced the opening of cooling centers around the city.

The air-conditioned spaces provide protection from the heat for the community. Signs of a heat-related illness include headache, dizziness, nausea, heavy sweating, confusion and pale or flushed skin. If you or someone you know is suffering from the heat, the American Red Cross recommends moving them to a cool place, getting them a cool drink, and applying ice packs or wet clothes to the skin. If the victim vomits or loses consciousness, call police immediately.
