CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Health has issued a statewide extreme heat warning and is working with partner organizations across the state to lower life-threatening conditions caused by the summer heat.
Lieutenant Chris Coulson with the Clarksville Salvation Army said they are helping people escape the excessive heat conditions. “What we are going to be doing is providing our facilities anytime there is a heat advisory on the Montgomery County website. Our doors will be open for those who are out and need shelter and a cooling center to come to,” said Coulson.
Coulson added that the Salvation Army will provide water and the rest of their facilities for people to come in and get hydrated and cool down and it will be a place where people can get out of harms way because they don’t want anyone to have any health related problems from the heat.
The Clarksville Salvation Army Shelter is located at 210 Kraft Street. For more information call 9931) 552-5350.
