What is a Cooling Center?

On unusually hot summer days, a Cooling Center is a place where you can go to cool off. Locations include:
• Community Centers
• Public Buildings

Can I go to a Cooling Center?

Yes. Cooling Centers are for everyone, especially those at risk of getting a heat-related illness:

  • Senior citizens
  • People with a medical condition
  • People with a disability
  • Infants and young children

Be Safe in the Heat!

• Stay hydrated
• Go to a cool place like a mall or library
• Plan ahead — Check the weather forecast

GET OUT OF THE HEAT!

Exposure to extreme heat can be life threatening. Finding a place to cool off can make all the difference. Use our Cooling Center Locator to find a place to cool off near you.
