Fresno Cooling Centers Active this Weekend

Fresno, CA Fresno PARCS would also like to remind residents that community centers maintain M-F hours separate from the Cooling Center activations and on hot days less than 105, they are still an option for heat relief. Residents are encouraged to call 621-CITY for Cooling Center activation status.

City of Fresno Cooling Center Protocol

When the National Weather Service (NWS), forecasts a high of 105 degrees or hotter, the City will activate 6 Cooling Centers strategically located throughout the City at Noon and they will remain open until 9 p.m. In addition, the City's FAX Bus system will provide free transportation along normal routes to and from the Cooling Center sites. To ride free, residents must indicate they are traveling to a Cooling Center. Individuals should refer to the FAX schedule to determine the final evening departure for buses.

PARCS also provides free swimming from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at all City operated pool locations. The City will be operating 4 standard pools, 3 high school pools and 5 learner pools for youth ages 3-12 (*learner pools are free regardless of the temperature but like high school pools, are closed on Sundays).

The 2009 Cooling Centers are made possible through a $15,000 donation from PG&E.
