Opening of Cooling Centers in Calaveras County

Calaveras County, CA...Calaveras County Health and Human Services Agency announces the opening of cooling centers countywide, Thursday through Saturday. Cooling Centers will be open June 17-19 from 11am-8pm.

Heat related illnesses, like heat stroke or heat exhaustion, happen when the body is not able to cool itself properly. When a person’s body temperature rises faster than it can cool itself by sweating, this can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs. Factors that might increase your risk of heat related illness include:
 Obesity
 Heart Disease
 Mental illness
 Poor circulation
 Fever
 Dehydration
 Sunburn
 Prescription drug use
 Alcohol use
