Lupe!In anticipation of a hot weekend, the D.C. government today posted a handy heat emergency plan for when the heat index climbs to 95 degrees or higher.

Included in the plan are the locations of emergency cooling centers, swimming pools, spray parks and air conditioned public libraries.

Also included is one important rule: Don’t open fire hydrants, no matter how hot it gets.

In the event of a heat emergency, those in need of transportation to a cooling center can call the hyperthermia hotline at 1-800-535-7252.
