In addition, Los Angeles County operates cooling centers throughout the region.  Call 211 to identify the cooling centers closest to you or visit to see a map of cooling center locations, and hours of operation (additional centers are being added).

Here are some helpful tips to stay safe in the heat:

  • Drink lots of water and wear loose-knit clothing.
  • Check up on relatives and neighbors, especially if they have pre-existing health conditions or are sensitive to heat.  Let them know the heat is coming and the ways to stay safe. 
  • Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. 
  • Take extra precautions if you work, exercise, or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening, or until this period of extreme heat is over. 
  • Know the difference between heat exhaustion and heat stroke.  Heat stroke is a life-threatening emergency. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location, and then immediately call 911.
