Orange County Cool Centers and Summer Heat Safety

Cool CentersOur District has officially welcomed summer! Unfortunately, all our summer fun is accompanied by summer heat.  Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva encourages you to stay safe, cool and hydrated.

Fortunately, several community hubs throughout our district have been designated as “Cool Centers” offering temporary relief from the summer heat. Some are Senior Centers, some are aquatic centers, and other locations will be libraries. So, find somewhere that will suit you best.

Below are some summer safety tips, and a list of “Cool Center” locations to help you escape the heat.

Summer Safety Tips

  • Take extra breaks
  • Drink plenty of water even if you don't feel thirsty
  • Put on sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin from the sun

For more information feel free to contact my Buena Park District Office at (714) 521-6505.
