Public Service Announcement from the City of Elk Grove | 

In anticipation of weekend temperatures topping the century mark, the City of Elk Grove announced today that it will open a cooling center beginning Saturday, August 5, and operating daily from Noon to 8 p.m. through Monday, August 7 at the Elk Grove Police Department located at 8400 Laguna Palms Way

The Cooling Center is open to anyone who lacks shelter or adequate home cooling. A limited number of animal kennels will be available to house pets, if needed.

Hot days pose a danger of heat-related illness for anyone outside for an extended time. Residents of all ages are encouraged to take the following precautions:

  • Avoid outdoor activities in the direct sun from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and
  • Keep hydrated; and
  • Stay in a cool space; and
  • Avoid area waterways as a means to cool off. Rivers continue to run cold and fast and present dangerous conditions for people of all ages.
