Heat Relief

Cooling Stations

 
When it's extremely hot, it's the poor and elderly who suffer the most. Many don't have air conditioning, or if they do they can't afford to run it.
 
To give relief from the heat, The Salvation Army has set up 15 Cooling Stations across the Metroplex.
 
Cooling Stations provide two necessary things for those at risk of heat exposure:
 
  • Hydration - People should drink plenty of water when it’s excessively hot. Cold water will be available each day throughout the summer. With such scorching temperatures it’s important for people to drink water before they get thirsty and to continue drinking throughout the day.
  • A cool environment – Increasing the amount of time spent in air-conditioned environments helps the body cool off and lessens the likelihood of getting overheated. The Salvation Army’s Cooling Stations provide a cool environment where people can cool off for a brief time or stay all day.
 
Donations to help fund the cooling stations are greatly appreciated. If you would like to make a donation, please visit this link.
