Cooling Centers

It's a Cool Thing To Do

Local meteorologists are predicting temperatures to be in the low to mid 90’s for Saturday. Even though the humidity will be much lower, the It’s a Cool Thing to Do program will remain active through Saturday evening.

Free rides to cooling centers are available to those with a physical and financial need through CATA, EATRAN and Clinton Area Transit.

To find a cooling center or to determine if they are eligible for a free ride, area residents should dial 2-1-1.

During extreme heat conditions everyone is urged to spend at least a few hours a day in a cool place. This is even more important for the elderly and those with chronic health conditions. Take care of yourself and others in the heat.

As a rule of thumb, heat index temperatures of 93-102 degrees will warrant a “condition orange—heat alert,” and 103 degrees and above will establish a “condition red—heat warning.” Meteorologists will also take other factors into consideration, such as the length of time that temperatures are expected to remain high, when making the determination.
