The combination of heat and humidity will result in apparent
temperatures in excess of 100 degrees across much of central North Carolina. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Due to the extreme heat, City of Fayetteville Splash Pads will operate with extended hours until 8 pm, beginning Tues., June 19.
Congratulations to FCPR’s Park Ranger Division Supervisor Neil McMillan. Ranger McMillan was recently recognized by the Park Ranger Institute as Park Ranger Supervisor of the Year. The Park Ranger Institute is a nationally recognized organization that provides training for both sworn and non-sworn Park Rangers. FCPR is proud to have Ranger McMillan on its team!
What comes to your mind when you think of parks and recreation? What do they do? What services do they provide? Who are they? For most, the answers to these questions are simple and normally involve something to do with sports. However, here at Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation (FCPR), we are so much more than that and the arrival of Hurricane Matthew in early October allowed our department to reveal its other roles in the community.
