Seeking Relief From the Heat
Posted 8:26 a.m.
Now that more public facilities have power restored, residents who remain without power in their own homes should consider visiting these public places to seek relief from the heat. Libraries, malls, recreation centers and other places that have power are good choices.
Residents who need urgent human services assistance should call 703-222-0880, TTY 711, which provides information, referral, linkage, and advocacy to public and private human services available to Fairfax County residents through partnerships with community-based organizations and non-profits.
Residents who know individuals needing special attention are encouraged to take a few minutes to check in on them to ensure their well-being. If residents need immediate, life-saving help, call 9-1-1.
