On Friday, July 29 there will be eight Cooling Centers available to Kitsap residents across the county providing relief from the heat. These centers are provided by our community partners at Kitsap Regional Library, The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties, and the Salvation Army in Bremerton. Information on times and locations can be found at http://kcowa.us/heat

The decision to activate Cooling Centers is made each day in based on the National Weather Service HeatRisk Index.  The forecast anticipates temperatures to start cooling on Sunday with temperatures returning to normal on Monday.

Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management recognizes and values the contribution made by these community partners in providing this important service.
