The Salvation Army is helping North Texas beat the heat with the installation of 13 cooling stations across the metroplex.
In a release issued on July 13, The Salvation Army said they will be opening air-conditioned cooling stations, located inside their community from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, to provide a safe place for people to stay during extreme, hot weather.
The Salvation Army said these centers will provide the following:
- A Cool Place to Sit During the Day
- Ice-Cold Water for Hydration
- Hot-Weather Survival Tips
- Free Electric Fans
Social Workers will also be available to meet with anyone who needs financial assistance with their utility bills during extremely high temperatures, according to The Salvation Army.
The cooling stations inside the Dallas and Fort Worth emergency homeless shelters will remain open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week due to high foot traffic.
