Escape the heat this Father's Day Weekend

FRESNO, Calif. - You can never be too careful in the heat, especially in triple digit temperatures, and The City of Fresno is prepared with places for you to go to cool you off and avoid any heat related injuries.

David Luchini with Fresno County Department of Public Health said it is vital to be prepared in this early June heat wave.

"This is usually something we see in July or early August. It's something we need to prepare for," he said.

Luchini says to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke, wear sunscreen, hydrate before you get thirsty, wear light clothing, and never stay in or leave anyone in a car.

 "The inside of a car when it's 100 degrees outside can get up to 140 degrees within fifteen minutes," he said.

Mark Standriff with the City of Fresno said when temperatures are over 105 degrees the city is prepared with indoor cooling centers, free entrance to community pools, and free FAX busses to both.

"There is an opportunity for everybody in Fresno to take advantage of some of the things the City of Fresno offers to stay cool when we know the temperatures will reach dangerously high numbers," he said.

Father's Day Weekend the city's cooling centers will be open from 12 PM to 8 PM and community pools will be open from 1 PM to 5 PM.
