Find Chicago and Cook County Cooling Centers

With temperatures expected to reach the century mark, staying cool is not just about staying comfortable, it is about staying safe. "We want to remind residents to be careful of heat related illnesses and to utilize the cooling centers located throughout Cook County," said Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. "I also urge everyone to be good neighbors and to check on the elderly, who often easily become victims of extreme heat." The Cook County Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management also recommends that people stay indoors as much as possible, staying in the shade if they go outside while wearing plenty of sunscreen, drinking water regularly, and never to leave children or pets in a car.
