Temporary Cooling Centers In Deer Park

Many people seek to stay cool because of the historical and extreme heatwave currently upon us, which will continue for an extended time. This heat can be especially problematic for heat sensitive and those without effective cooling and/or adequate hydration.  

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), daily, record-high temperatures will likely be broken each day with a record of 108 degrees within reach during the peak of the heatwave, Monday through Thursday. Exposure to extreme heat can cause various health problems, including heatstroke, heat exhaustion, and even death. 

Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery,” remains in force as of now. However, Governor Inslee suspends capacity limitations for all cooling centers owned or operated by nonprofit or public entities. Giving more people access to places to protect against the heat. The suspension of capacity limitations does not apply to private, for-profit businesses that offer air-conditioned spaces to the general public.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines a cooling center as a location, typically an air-conditioned or cooled building, designated as a site to provide respite and safety during extreme heat. They may be a government-owned building such as a library or school, an existing community center, religious center, recreation center, or a private business such as a coffee shop, shopping mall, or movie theatre.
