Cooling Stations

July 12, 2019

 

Given the heat wave, the City of Glendale Community Services and Parks Department is opening its doors at community centers this weekend to serve as cooling stations for seniors.

 

The City of Glendale is highly encouraging seniors, who do not have a cool place to be during the hottest time of the day, to come by our facilities to cool off, make new friends, relax, and avoid hot temperatures.

 

If you plan to be outdoors, please take precautions to protect yourself from the sun and heat.

  • Avoid the sun from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. when the burning rays are strongest.

  • Reduce physical activity.

  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat and light colored lightweight, loose-fitting clothes when you are outdoors.

  • Avoid hot, heavy meals that include proteins.

  • Set your air conditioner between 75° to 80°. If you don’t have air-conditioning take a cool shower twice a day and visit a public air conditioned facility.

  • Drink plenty of fluids even if you are not thirsty. Avoid alcohol and caffeine.

  • Use sun screen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 if you need to be in the sun.

  • Stay in shade whenever working outdoors.

  • Don’t forget about your pets, they need plenty of water and shade.

Symptoms of dehydration and heat cramps include dizziness, fatigue, faintness, headaches, rapid heartbeat, muscle cramps and increased thirst. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention or call 911.
