Surprise offering cooling stations during extreme heat

5 locations in city provide relief

Posted

Temperatures are expected to reach up to 114 degrees this week and the National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Watch starting Wednesday morning through the evening of Monday, June 13.

This is the perfect time to remind our community that the city of Surprise is a Heat Relief Network partner, providing hydration and indoor refuge stations for those in need of a place to cool off during the hot summer months.

The Heat Relief Network is a support network of service providers, faith-based groups, municipalities, businesses and caring citizens mobilizing to provide help to people in need.

The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) coordinates the mapping of cooling locations and donation collection sites, which will run through September.

Designated stations offer indoor refuge from heat during the day, as well as drinking fountains or bottled water. One of these hydration stations is located at the Surprise Resource Center, 12425 W Bell Road Building A Suite 124.

Cooling centers can be found at the following Surprise locations:

  • Surprise Resource Center - 12425 W. Bell Rd., Building A, Suite 124
  • Hollyhock Library - 15844 N. Hollyhock St.
  • Northwest Regional Library - 16089 N. Bullard Ave.
  • Asante Library - 16755 W. Vereda Solana Dr.
  • The Salvation Army Sun Cities Valley Corps - 17420 N. Avenue of the Arts Blvd.

People can help those in need by donating water bottles to the Surprise Resource Center or the Salvation Army.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more people die in the U.S. from heat than all other natural disasters combined.
