This week, the metro area is expected to have high temperatures in the upper 90s, with heat index values expected to peak near 110 degrees.

During this time, we want to make sure our riders stay safe. Extreme heatwaves can be dangerous!

We put together some information to help everyone stay cool.

The Salvation Army will be opening three different cooling centers, offering an air-conditioned space and bottled water for anyone in need of a temporary place to avoid the heat:

  • Heritage Place at Renaissance Village, 3612 Cuming Street
    • Open weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    • On Route 4
  • Kroc Center, 2825 Y Street
    • Open weekdays 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
    • Open Saturdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
    • On Route 24
  • Salvation Army North Corps, 2424 Pratt Street
    • Open weekdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Siena Francis House will also have their cooling center and will be handing out water, sunscreen, and lip balm to those who check in:

  • Services Center, 1401 N 18th Street

With these extreme temperatures, try to follow guidelines from the CDC:

  • Stay indoors when possible
  • Dress properly
  • Take breaks often
  • Stay hydrated with water
  • Know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke
