When the Weather Outside is Frightful

The Town of Copake would like to remind residents that during extended power outages affecting large number of town residents, the Town Hall and/or the Park Building may serve as warming centers and charging stations.  These centers will provide Town residents (experiencing power outages) a place to go to warm up (or cool down in the summer months!) and/or charge their mobile devices.  Wi-Fi is also available in both the Town Hall and the Park Building.  

Let’s Be Safe!
