Cooling Centers Open Wednesday, But Will Not Reopen on Subsequent Days

July 03, 2013

Cooling centers set up by Placer County at branch libraries in Auburn, Loomis, Rocklin and Granite Bay will remain open today, but are not scheduled to reopen on subsequent days.

Today, community rooms at the Auburn, Loomis and Rocklin libraries will serve as cooling centers during normal operating hours and may remain open until 8 p.m. if needed. The Granite Bay branch will serve as a cooling center until it closes at 7 p.m.

Addresses for the four libraries are:

  • Auburn: 350 Nevada St.
  • Granite Bay: 6475 Douglas Blvd.
  • Loomis: 6050 Library Drive
  • Rocklin: 4890 Granite Dr.

The decision to not reopen the cooling centers on the Fourth of July and following days was prompted by a National Weather Service forecast that predicts this week’s heat wave will end soon, with cooler overnight temperatures beginning tonight and significantly lower daytime temperatures beginning Friday.

“Daytime temperatures will remain hot Thursday and residents should continue to take appropriate precautions,” said Program Manager John McEldowney of the Placer County Office of Emergency Services, “but the trend is going in the right direction.”    

More information on symptoms and tips for avoiding heated-related illness is available on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by clicking this link: EXTREME HEAT.

Children and seniors are particularly susceptible to heat-related illnesses.

For more information about Placer County cooling centers, please call 530-886-5310. The line will be staffed until 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Information about county cooling centers is available on the county website at COOLING CENTERS.
