Description

Cooling centers provide a safe place for people, especially those most vulnerable, to escape extreme seasonal temperatures and save money on their utility bills. Those most vulnerable include older adults, young children, homeless individuals, and disabled individuals. Individuals are also at risk if they have certain medical conditions, take medication for high-blood pressure, have a mental-health condition, have been using drugs or alcohol, or have had a previous heart-related illness. When it is over 90 degrees outside and you do not have air conditioning in your home, it is recommended that you seek a cooling center. For more information, call 800-511-1110 or email info@capriverside.org.
