DALLAS (May 30, 2018) – With triple-digit temperatures on our doorsteps, The Salvation Army has today officially launched Cooling Stations at 13 of its centers in the DFW Metroplex. The Cooling Stations provide relief from the heat throughout the summer. 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 throughout the summer. 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.

For media photo ops, the Cooling Stations with the highest traffic are at The Salvation Army’s two shelters in Dallas and Fort Worth. These Cooling Stations will be open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
