LANSING, Mich. — Cooling Centers will be open from Thursday, July 18, 2019 - Saturday, July 20, 2019.

It's a Cool Thing to Do

Cooling Centers offer Tri-County residents a place to go to escape the heat for at least a few hours a day. This is especially important for seniors and people with chronic health conditions.

Free rides to Cooling Centers are available for residents with a physical and financial need through CATA, EATRAN, and Clinton Area Transit. Residents should call 2-1-1 for more information.

Hot Weather To-Do List

  • Check on neighbors or family members without air conditioning who may have a hard time getting out of their home.
  • Make sure pets have plenty of water and a cool place to rest.
  • Take care of yourself by avoiding strenuous activity during the hottest part of the day and by spending at least a few hours a day in a cool place.
