Every year Multnomah County faces several heat waves that can be dangerous for older people or other vulnerable people. In that time, cooling centers are open throughout the region. People can get out of the heat, into the A/C and enjoy cool, restoring beverages, food, entertainment.
Unfortunately, many of these cooling centers are underutilized and people are left at home to suffer the heat.
You will receive an email alert when cooling centers are open so that you can alert people who might need help.
