ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Several organizations in southern Minnesota are ready to help folks cool off if need be.

The Salvation Army in Albert Lea is opening its doors to those who need relief from the heat; even though they say they haven’t been asked to open as a cooling center yet.

But, they are working closely with freeborn county leaders and are ready if asked.

“They feed us information every day to make sure we are filled with the proper information, the most updated things we need to know to keep our self informed too,” Captain Jim Brickson said. “So, when they get it, they give it to us right away.”

Brickson reminds people to check on their neighbors and elderly.
