Indio Offers Four Cool Centers During Summer Heat

The Sun City Shadow Hills Emergency Preparedness Subcommittee is posting this for the benefit of our residents based on information from Riverside County.

Four cool centers are now located throughout Indio for those who need temporary relief from the heat.

Cool Centers are activated when temperatures reach 97 degrees, or are needed by their community, and are open to the public through October 15, 2021.

“That could mean the Cool Centers are active every day until the end of the summer here in the desert,” said Indio’s Emergency Services Manager, Dennis Day. “We were glad to be able to work with the county to add the Indio Public Library as another option here, with the added bonus of getting children involved in the library’s summer reading program.”
