County of Riverside Community Action Partnership is coordinating Cool Centers to serve as drop-in sites for vulnerable individuals, seniors, the disabled, and others in need of temporary relief from the heat. The Mary Phillips Senior Center is a designated cool center during the summer.

Hot Weather Tips:


  • Drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol and caffeine.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat, or use an umbrella for shade.
  • Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose clothing.
  • Slow down—rest in the shade or a cool place when possible.
  • Never leave a child, elderly, disabled person, or animal alone in a vehicle.
  • Keep shaded areas with fresh water for outdoor animals.
  • Turn on your air conditioner.
  • Check on friends and neighbors who are elderly, have medical conditions, or are at higher risk for problems when it is very hot.
  • If you do not have an air conditioner, use a fan, make sure your windows are open, and visit a cool center.
  • Take a cool shower or bath.
  • When it is hotter than 90˚ ,visit a friend that has air conditioning in their home or a cool place like a mall, a library or a senior center.

You are also at risk if you 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 heat-related illness.
