EXTREME WEATHER RESOURCES – (HEAT OR COLD)
CHA is concerned about residents’ good health and wellness, especially during extremely hot or cold weather. As temperatures rise, the Chicago Housing Authority reminds everyone, especially seniors, to take basic precautions to stay cool and to be aware of the signs and symptoms of heat stroke and heat exhaustion. When weather is extremely hot or cold, CHA Property Management, with the assistance of contracted service providers, conducts well-being checks with an emphasis on frail and seniors at all CHA owned properties. In addition, all Senior Building community rooms serve as cooling centers (or warming centers in winter).
