City to Open Cooling Center Sunday & Monday (9/27 & 9/28)

 Cooling Centers Open 8/17 & 8/18

Temperatures are expected to rise through Monday, 9/28 with daytime temperatures reaching the high 90s to low 100s. The hottest days will be Sunday and Monday. 

Due to the heightened weather conditions, the City of Santa Rosa will activate a cooling center on Sunday (9/27) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Monday (9/28) from 1 to 7 p.m. to offer residents a place for heat relief. 

The cooling center will be located at:

Franklin Park Clubhouse – 2095 Franklin Avenue, Santa Rosa 95404
Food will NOT be permitted. Service animals ONLY.

Immigrants are welcome and safe at the City’s cooling center. No ID will be requested for entry.

For a list of cooling centers in other areas of Sonoma County, go to socoemergency.org/emergency/resource-stations. Please note that rules and allowances may vary by site.

To adhere to public health order guidelines, face coverings must be worn inside the cooling centers, and cooling center visitors must maintain six feet of physical distance between themselves and visitors from other households. Additionally, wellness screenings, including temperature checks, will be required at the door upon entry. Visitors must stay within the space designated as the cooling center area except to use restrooms. Face coverings and hand sanitizer will be available on site for those that do not bring their own.

Residents planning to visit the City-operated cooling center site should plan ahead for their visit. Books, games, and laptops are allowed. For the experience of all residents, please bring and use headphones for listening. Free WiFi is available, but no broadcast television, and the ability to charge devices may be limited. Due to space limitations, please limit your personal items to one small tote and daypack per person. Only service animals will be permitted inside of the cooling center. Please note that the City of Santa Rosa is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

The City of Santa Rosa will continue to monitor conditions through the week to determine if a cooling center will be needed for additional days beyond Sunday and Monday.

Residents should be mindful of the heat and follow these safety tips:

  • Never leave children, seniors or pets in a parked car during periods of intense summer heat.
  • If possible, stay out of the sun and in air-conditioned areas.
  • Drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated even if you do not feel thirsty. Your body needs water to keep cool.
  • Check on seniors and those most susceptible to heat impacts.
  • Take extra care for pets, crops and livestock.
  • Watch for hot pavement when walking dogs.
