Heat Wave Resources

Over the next several days, California is facing an excessive heat wave with parts of the state reaching record breaking temperatures. Older adults, children under four, people with existing medical conditions, and those without access to air conditioning are the most at risk to extreme heat and heat-related illnesses. To prepare for this heat wave, I am sharing with you a list of trusted resources to keep you and your loved ones safe, healthy, and cool during this time. Help spread the word and share these resources with your family, friends, and communities.
