Calaveras, CA– The heat wave has prompted Calaveras County to open Cooling Centers over the holiday weekend. Temperatures of 113 degrees are anticipated in parts of Calaveras County. Older adults, young children, people with chronic conditions, and people who are ill or on uncertain medications are seen as vulnerable to this kind of extreme heat.

It can keep yourself and others safe and prevent serious injuries and even death during high temperatures. Take a moment to check on your family, friends, neighbors, and animals this holiday weekend to make sure they have water, food, and access to a cool indoor space. It can help save a life.”
