Cooling Center for Elders

Date: June 27 - 29, 2022

Time: 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Location: Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall, 320 W. Willoughby Ave. Juneau, AK

The National Weather Service has issued a special weather warning for a potential heat wave that could affect many Southeast Alaska communities. Widespread hot temperatures are expected this weekend with highs in the 70s to mid-80s. Starting Monday, June 27th, and continuing through the first half of the week, temperatures could reach the upper 80s into the 90s.

In preparation for the heat wave, Tlingit & Haida will be opening the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall to serve as a cooling center for Elders. The hall will be open June 27-29, 2022 from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM.

If you are an Elder in Juneau and need relief from the heat, stop by the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall to stay cool and enjoy air conditioning, refreshments, door prizes and good company!

It is important that we all take the time to plan ahead and help minimize the impacts of the heat wave. Here are some helpful tips to ensure our tribal citizens stay healthy, cool and safe during the extraordinary heat coming to Southeast Alaska.

Safety Tips to Beat the Heat:
• Locate fans for cooling.
• Wear light-colored and loose-fitted clothes.
• Drink plenty of fluids.
• Apply sun protection.
• Take breaks if you must be outdoors for extended periods.
• Do not leave young children and pets unattended in closed vehicles.
• Plan to check on the elderly, those who are home-bound, and other loved ones and neighbors who could be more vulnerable.
