When the weather heats up, San Diego County has arranged for places where residents can keep cool.
The county's official list of "Cool Zones" for 2016 include libraries, senior centers and museums as well as recreational centers.
These places help older adults and others keep cool while saving the added cost of air conditioning when temperatures are unusually high.
While the cool zones are open only during regular business hours there are several that have weekend hours.

If you cannot get to a Cool Zone, county officials suggest you stay indoors as much as possible. If you cannot use air conditioning, stay on the lowest floor with shades down and blinds closed. Windows should stay slightly open.
Wear light, loose clothing and drink more fluids than usual even if you do not feel thirsty.
