Several areas in Highland County are offering assistance during daytime hours for those needing heat stress relief
The Highland County Emergency Management Agency is offering advice for people needing daytime relief from extreme heat stress, due to electrical outages in their homes.
Highland EMA is urging such individuals to reach-out to family members that might be able to assist, but if that is not possible, several locations throughout the county will be hosting a "cooling shelter" during the daytime hours.
*Greenfield Baptist Church- 250 Lafayette Street
*Lynchburg Fire/EMS- State Route 135 south of the village
*Highland Co Joint North Fire District- 200 South Street Leesburg
*1st Presbyterian Church- 201 East Mian Street Hillsboro

If handling issues of debris clean-up, do not burn anything during this time of heat stress. Simply move materials out of the way for the time being.
