BROOKLINE, MA – With temperatures expected to be in the 90’s beginning Saturday, June 30th and continuing into next week, the Emergency Management Team has issued a heat advisory. Below is information about Brookline cooling centers, including their hours of operation and addresses. Brookline Public Safety Building 350 Washington Street 24 hours a day, 7 days a week Brookline Senior Center 93 Winchester Street Monday – Friday: 8:30am – 5pm The Public Libraries of Brookline Main: 361 Washington St Monday–Thursday: 10am-9pm; Friday and Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday:1pm5pm. Putterham Branch: 959 West Roxbury Parkway Monday and Wednesday: 10-6 pm, Tuesday and Thursday: 10am-9pm, Friday and Saturday, 9:30 am- 5 pm, Sunday 1pm – 5pm. For residents of 61 Park Street, 90 Longwood Avenue, 50 Pleasant Street, 190 Harvard Street, the Brookline Housing Authority will have their air-conditioned community rooms available for residents. The Evelyn Kirrane Aquatics Center, 60 Tappan Street, also is open. Brookline residents may use the pool free of charge for Open Swim only during designated hours when a heat alert is in effect. Please call 617-713-5435 for hours and specific details. Public Safety Headquarters 350 Washington Street, Brookline, Massachusetts 02445 In addition, the Brookline Department of Public Health is advising the public of the following: Tips for Preventing Heat Related Illnesses:  NEVER leave children, adults or pets alone in a closed, parked vehicle.  Slow down, avoid strenuous activity.  Avoid too much sun.  Plan outdoor games and activities for early morning or evening.  Avoid extreme temperature changes.  Stay indoors as much as possible and use air conditioners to cool the air. When the temperature is in the 90’s, fans will not prevent heat related illness. Taking a cool shower or bath is a better way to cool off.  Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing that will cover as much skin as possible.  Protect face and head by wearing a wide brimmed hat.  Drink plenty of fluids, even if you do not feel thirsty, and avoid alcoholic beverages, drinks with caffeine and large amounts of sugar—these actually cause you to lose more body fluid.  Use your stove less and try to cook your meals in the cooler part of the day.  Although any one at any time can suffer from heat-related illness, some people are at greater risk than others.  Check regularly on: o Infants and young children o People aged 65 or older o People who have a mental illness o Those who are physically ill, especially with heart disease or high blood pressure  Visit adults at risk at least twice a day and closely watch them for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Infants and young children, of course, need much more frequent watching.  KEEP COOL – Spend as much time as you can in cooler surroundings

Carroll School of Management professor Gerald Kane and colleagues found “digitally maturing companies push decision-making further down into the organization" in the 2018 Digital Business Report. The study's findings (https://on.bc.edu/DigitalAge_2018) was published in Forbes and The Wall Street Journal.

    Technology Alone Won't Buy You Happiness -- or Digital Transformation
    It's a lesson that has to keep get driven home again and again: buying and installing all the latest technologies, and thinking it will all magically transform an organization with moribund processes into an overnight dynamo, is misguided -- and expensive -- thinking.
