COOLING CENTERS: CALL 2-1-1

For the most up-to-date cooling center information, please call 2-1-1 and speak to a Call Center Specialist. Or visit the above website for locations.During periods of extreme heat, we'll declare a heat emergency and open community centers as cooling centers. Please check on your neighbors and the elderly to make sure they're okay. Libraries are open.
