Cooling Centers

During the summertime, senior citizens and others at risk from extreme heat can find relief at cooling centers across Kern County. Residents using the centers should bring their own books, puzzles or games to pass the time. Water and snacks will be provided thanks to funding from PG&E.   Criteria for opening cooling centers
