Submitted by Thurston County Public Health and Social Services

The decision to activate Cooling Centers is typically made each day, based on the National Weather Service HeatRisk Index. HeatRisk takes into consideration how unusual heat is for the time of year, the duration of the heat including both daytime and nighttime temperatures, and if those temperatures pose an elevated risk of heat-related impacts. 

During this extreme heat, several Daytime-Cooling-Centers are available to help you beat the heat. These cooling centers are provided by our community partners:
