Attendees are required to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing while at the Cool Center. For additional Cool Center locations, hours, and tips on how to protect yourself from heat-related illnesses, please visit www.capriverside.org.
 
Safety tips during extreme heat:
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water regularly, even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.
  • Limit your exposure to the sun, if possible. If you must be outside, be sure to wear a hat, use sunscreen, and dress in loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible.
  • Use a buddy system when working in extreme heat and remember to take frequent breaks. Try to avoid strenuous work during the hottest part of the day.
  • Check on elderly family, friends, and neighbors who live alone or do not have air conditioning to make sure they’re safe.
  • Never leave children or pets in enclosed vehicles, even with the windows "cracked" or open.
 
The CRC is located at 1310 Oak Valley Parkway. For questions regarding the Cool Center, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at (951) 769-8524.
