Cool Centers for Riverside County’s Desert Areas

http://www.capriverside.org

The Community Action Partnership of Riverside County (CAP) has partnered with senior and community centers to provide cool centers, drop-in sites for vulnerable individuals, the disabled and seniors in need of temporary relief from the summer heat.
 
"Cool centers offer a cool environment to relax and decrease home electrical use during peak afternoon hours," said Supervisor John J. Benoit. "I encourage all residents suffering from high energy bills and temperatures to beat the heat at these cool centers."
 
Cool centers are open to the public, starting June 15, in affected areas when the Riverside County Department of Public Health issues a "heat warning," when the forecast anticipates temperatures of 100 degrees for three to five consecutive days.
 
For additional information, CAP is running a Summer Energy Crisis Hotline at (888) 636-8676.
