Extreme Heat Warning in Place

With the Excessive Heat Warning in place from Thursday afternoon through Sunday, King County shares some helpful information on ways to stay safe – see www.kcemergency.com.

The tips include:

  • Checking in on neighbors or relatives who may be vulnerable to the heat.
  • Visiting air conditioned places like libraries, malls or movie theaters.
  • Drinking plenty of water – the body’s air conditioner!
  • Never leaving children or pets unattended in a vehicle, even with open windows

Many cities are offering cooling centers for those who need them. You can search win211.org for registered “Extreme Heat Cooling Centers” by zip code. The City of Kirkland also offers a list of public buildings open to residents for heat relief at: https://www.kirklandwa.gov/Whats-Happening/News/City-of-Kirkland-Establishes-Cooling-Center-Ahead-of-Heat-Wave.

Stay cool and well-hydrated this weekend!
