Cooling Centers

Cooling centers are facilities where you can go to cool off during extreme heat. The New York State Department of Health collected information about seasonal cooling centers from local health departments and emergency management offices.

To view the address and phone number of a cooling center in your area, select your county on the map below or visit county cooling centers. Some counties (gray) do not have cooling centers listed. If a cooling center is not available, libraries, supermarkets, malls, and community swimming pools are great places to stay cool.

Call before you go! Cooling centers may be closed at certain times or only available during extreme heat events.

Use the Cooling Center Mapping Application to get public transportation information or driving and walking directions to a cooling center near you.
