Cooling centres are air-conditioned public spaces set up by municipalities to temporarily support people during a heat wave. Cooling centres can help prevent heat-related illness in people who don’t have access to air conditioned spaces by providing them with a cool environment, water, and medical attention, if needed.
Note: Cooling centre hours may vary; confirm with your local municipality before you go.
