Glendale to Open Cooling Stations

. 1 min read

Glendale, CA – In light of the expected heat wave, the City of Glendale Community Services and Parks Department is opening its doors at select community centers to serve as cooling stations.

The City of Glendale is highly encouraging those who do not have a cool place to be during the hottest time of the day, to come the facilities listed below to cool off.  Social distancing protocols will be observed, participants must wear a face covering at all times, and will undergo a temperature check prior to entering the facility.

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.

·         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.
