    West Hollywood Opens Cooling Centers During High Heat Temperatures

    - Advertisement -

    With high temperatures across Southern California, and with a Heat Advisory in effect through Sunday, July 7, 2024, the City of West Hollywood will open its Cooling Center at Plummer Park.

    The Cooling Center will be open during the following days and times:

    • Friday, July 5, 2024 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
    • Saturday, July 6, 2024 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
    • Sunday, July 7, 2024 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

    The Cooling Center is located at the Plummer Park Community Center Senior Lounge, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard. The Cooling Center in West Hollywood is activated when temperatures rise to 90 degrees or above. Staff members at Plummer Park are available to direct people to the Cooling Center.

    The City of West Hollywood provides free transportation to Plummer Park through its Cityline service. Cityline is a friendly and accessible alternative to the larger bus system and all shuttles are ADA-accessible. Cityline operates Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and shuttles arrive approximately every 30 minutes. For additional information and a detailed route map, visit www.weho.org/cityline — route maps are also available on shuttles.

    High heat can make the weather dangerous as well as uncomfortable. The City reminds residents and community members to take precautions to keep as cool as possible during hot days. If possible, stay out of the sun; avoid strenuous activity; drink plenty of water; and wear lightweight clothing.

    The City reminds community members that pets and children are particularly vulnerable to high-heat conditions. Every year, children and pets suffer and die when left unattended in parked vehicles. On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked vehicle can soar to 120 degrees in just minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes – even with windows cracked open. Think twice before ever leaving a child or a pet in a parked vehicle, even for just a moment.

    High heat is also extremely hazardous for pet paws. Ground temperatures can be much hotter than the surrounding air and pavement and sidewalks absorb heat quickly. A seven-second test to check whether pavement is too hot can help assess if conditions are too hot to take a furry friend out for a walk. Touch the pavement with the back of your hand for seven seconds. If the surface is too hot to hold for the full seven seconds, then it is also too hot for paws. Avoid concrete, brick, and asphalt during the heat of the day and, instead, walk when the ground is cooler, early in the morning or late in the evening.

    For additional tips about coping with high-heat days – as well as more information about where to stay cool around West Hollywood – please visit the City’s Cooling Center website page at www.weho.org/coolingcenters.

    The 10 Hottest years in human history were the last 10❗ Carbon pollution from coal, oil, & natural gas has never been higher, latest Global Carbon Project research study. Greenhouse gases are pushing Earth to new temperature records. The record-breaking 28 U.S. $billion weather & climate disasters in 2023 is consistent with well-established Science on the consequences of carbon pollution. Latest IPCC reports“It is an established fact that human-induced greenhouse gas emissions have led to an increased frequency and/or intensity of some weather and climate extremes since pre-industrial time, in particular for temperature extremes.”

    NPC

    A play on the term “non–player character” from various forms of interactive gaming (particularly RPGs).

    Someone using no critical thought or reasoning skills.
    Simply regurgitating a set of arguments and non-sequiturs bequeathed to them by someone else.

    You’re literally copy and pasting a definition several times. Are you admitting to be an NPC?

    Wow, John Cleese, wow!

    Ad hominem arguments and name calling when you lack the knowledge and skill to handle anything relevant to the topic❗
