A 'cool center' has opened once again in Palm Desert to provide relief for those trying to escape summer-like temperatures.
The Joslyn Center, located at 73-750 Catalina Way, provides safe, air-conditioned facilities for free during hot summer days, officials with Southern California Edison said.
On extremely hot days, SCE works with Cool Centers to offer customers a place to get away from the heat.
While cooling off, visitors can learn about SCE's income-qualified and energy-efficiency programs, energy conservation, and additional community programs that are available.
Officials said Cool Centers are for everyone, but especially for those at risk of getting a heat-related illness.
At risk people include:
- Senior citizens
- People with a medical condition
- The disabled
- Infants and young children
You can call the Joslyn Center at 760-340-3220 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also call SCE at (800) 655-4555 if you have questions about cool centers.
