LinkedIn Discussion Group: Cool Zones

To assist citizens during the hottest part of the year, and in the interest of public health, some Authority members arrange for a network of cool zones or cooling centers (e.g. libraries and churches), which provide cool, air-conditioned locations for residents and other individuals who have nowhere else to go. However, it’s necessary to think strategically about where these cool zones should be located, how long they should be open, and what rules exist for those individuals who visit. What are some of the parameters used when establishing cool zones? Members can share their thoughts on the Authority’s LinkedIn discussion group pageregarding establishing cool zones.
