08/26/2010

With temperatures forecast to be above 105 again today, City of Fresno Cooling Centers will remain open. Residents may visit Mosqueda Community Center, Pinedale Community Center, Ted C. Wills Community Center and the Frank H. Ball Neighborhood Center for heat relief from noon until 8pm. The City will provide free bus transportation along normal routes to and from the cooling centers for residents requesting a ride.

When the forecast is below 105 degrees, City officials will monitor weather conditions and may call for activation at any time if urgent public health and safety issues arise. The public can refer to the City’s website, www.fresno.gov or call 621-CITY to confirm Cooling Center activations. The City’s Cooling Centers are made possible through grant funds from Pacific Gas and Electric Company.

*Please be advised that the City of Fresno’s four standard swimming pools are closed for the season and will not be available for use at Cooling Center facilities.
