With extreme heat and humidity expected over the next few days, Mayor Meer would like to remind the citizens of cooling centers located within the City of Michigan City.
Cooling centers will be available at the following locations:
- Michigan City Police Station (24 hours) 1201 E. Michigan Blvd.
- Michigan City Fire Administration Building (8am-4pm, Monday-Friday) 2510 E. Michigan Blvd.
- Michigan City Senior Center (8:00am-4:00pm, Monday-Friday) 2 on the Lake

- Keys to Hope Community Resource Center (8:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday, 8:00am-12pm, Saturday-Sunday) 1802 Franklin Street
Public health officials recommend that people spend at least part of the day in an air-conditioned environment. If someone doesn’t have air conditioning or can’t get to an air-conditioned location, they should take a cool bath or shower during the day. Health officials advise that even a brief spell in cool water or air conditioning allows the body to recover from the cumulative effects of high heat and humidity.
Mayor Meer urges the citizens of Michigan City to check on family, friends, neighbors, pets and especially the elderly during these extended times of high heat and humidity to make sure everyone stays healthy.
Any citizen needing transportation to a cooling center may call the M.C. Police Department’s non-emergency number at: 219-874-3221
