Cooling Centers

Cooling centers are facilities where you can go to cool off during extreme heat. The New York State Department of Health collects information about seasonal cooling centers, which is voluntarily submitted by local health departments and emergency management offices.

To view the address and phone number of a cooling center near you, select your county on the map or dropdown or visit county cooling centers. You can also use the Cooling Center Mapping Application to get public transportation information or driving and walking directions.

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. View our Cooling Centers FAQ for more information about how cooling centers are identified and why they are important.

Always call before you go to make sure the cooling center is open. Some cooling centers are open daily, while others are opened as needed.
