HOT HOT HOT Pretty much sums up Denver right now and the city is stepping up to provide some relief with cooling centers popping up!

Here are some:

Denver Parks and Recreation will offer space in each of its rec centers that the public can access during normal business hours to cool off.

Denver Public Library locations are also available to use as indoor spaces to escape the heat and they will have water on hand.

 

What to know about a Heat Advisory according to Weather.gov

  • Heat Advisory—Take Action! A Heat Advisory is issued within 12 hours of the onset of extremely dangerous heat conditions. The general rule of thumb for this Advisory is when the maximum heat index temperature is expected to be 100° or higher for at least 2 days, and night time air temperatures will not drop below 75°; however, these criteria vary across the country, especially for areas that are not used to dangerous heat conditions. Take precautions to avoid heat illness. If you don’t take precautions, you may become seriously ill or even die.
