[ARCHIVED] Tips to Beat the Heat, Stay Safe in Santa Rosa

Heat Wave_6.10.19_news flash

The National Weather Service (NWS) is forecasting hot temperatures for the North Bay, including the City of Santa Rosa. Temperatures in Santa Rosa are expected to peak at 101 degrees this afternoon. Because temperatures dropped significantly overnight, the NWS considers today’s weather a Moderate Heat Risk event.

Residents should be mindful of the heat and heed the following tips to stay safe:

  • Never leave children, seniors or pets in a parked car during periods of intense summer heat.
  • Drink fluids, particularly water, even if you do not feel thirsty. Your body needs water to keep cool.
  • If possible, stay out of the sun and in air-conditioned areas.
  • Mow fields in the mornings before 10AM, but never when it’s windy or excessively dry. Lawn mowers are designed to mow lawns, not weeds or dry grass. Metal blades striking rocks can create sparks and start fires.

The Recreation and Parks Department operates several air-conditioned lobbies that are open to the public if citizens need a place to stay cool during the day, including:

  • Finley Community Center - 2060 West College Avenue - 8AM-6PM, M-F & Sat 9AM-11AM
  • Person Senior Wing – 2060 West College Ave – 8AM-5PM, M-F Bring books, games and/or laptops and headphones. Free WiFi is available. There is no TV available.
  • Steele Lane Community Center - 415 Steele Lane - 8:00AM-5PM, M-F

The City’s two public pools are also open for recreational swimming with associated fees, including:

  • Finley Aquatic Center - 2060 West College Avenue - 1:30-4:45PM M-F and Sat & Sun 1:30-6PM
  • Ridgway Swim Center - 455 Ridgway Avenue - 1:15-4PM M-F, 7:30-9:30PM F and Sat & Sun 1:15-6PM
  • Fees: $4.50 Adult / Youth, Senior, Disabled: $3.50
