City of Palm Springs

 June 10, 2019

As temperatures begin to heat up in the Coachella Valley, the City of Palm Springs would like to alert citizens that five convenient cooling centers will be offered this summer in Palm Springs whenever the Riverside County Department of Public Health issues a heat warning. The City of Palm Springs is entirely funding the cooling centers, with assistance from the Community Action Partnership of Riverside County, who provide snacks and water.

In addition, the City Council has requested the County of Riverside, who is responsible for Social Services, provide for the homeless in Palm Springs by opening day and night cooling centers for those unsheltered individuals who need assistance when the temperature reaches 100 degrees or higher.
