Visit a Vista Cool Zone to Escape the Heat

Post Date:07/05/2018 4:32 PM

High temperatures can increase the risk of heat-related illness. If you need to escape the heat, head to a Cool Zone. Cool Zones are FREE, designated,  air-conditioned buildings where the public can go to avoid the heat. The sites provide refreshing relief, especially for seniors and individuals with health problems that could be complicated by the effects of the heat.
