Gary Schenkel, executive director of Chicago's Office of Emergency Management and Communications, says Chicagoans should stay informed about weather conditions and be aware of where to get relief from the heat.

Residents may call 3-1-1 for the location of the nearest city cooling center.

Schenkel also recommends drinking plenty of water and signing up to receive extreme weather alerts at www.NotifyChicago.org.
