Town of Los Gatos

Cooling Stations Opened to the Community to Combat Extreme Heat

The Town of Los Gatos has opened two cooling stations to the community to ensure that Los Gatos residents have a safe place to stay during this week’s expected high temperatures.

Residents, especially senior citizens, are strongly advised to take advantage of cooling stations if needed. Cooling stations are air-conditioned facilities where residents can find relief from the heat.

Los Gatos cooling stations are located at:        

Los Gatos Adult Recreation Center
208 E. Main Street 
8:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. Wednesday thru Friday

Los Gatos Library
100 Villa Avenue
10:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m. Wednesday thru Friday
10:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. Saturday
12:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m. Sunday

Here are a few tips from Red Cross to stay cool:
  • Never leave children or pets alone in enclosed vehicles.
  • Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, even if you do not feel thirsty.  Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.
  • Avoid extreme temperature changes.
  • Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing.  Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.
  • Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.
  • Postpone outdoor games and activities.
  • Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat.  Take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors.
  • Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat.
  • Those who work outside in the heat should also take special precautions to prevent heat-related illnesses by periodically getting out of the heat and staying hydrated, especially when they start to feel hot.
