Here is a list of current cooling shelters available in the Rogue Valley:
Due to high temperatures forecasted, Medford City Manager Brian Sjothun has issued a severe weather event declaration effective Saturday, July 15. The City of Medford is partnering with ACCESS to open and operate a cooling shelter.
The cooling shelter will be located at the former Kelly Shelter (324 West 6th Street) and will be open from 12 – 8 p.m.
The cooling shelter will provide water, restrooms, snacks, and cooling area and water for pets. Individuals may come and go.
ACCESS is always looking for volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering or have resources to contribute please may email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Medford Alert will update the list of available cooling centers as new information is provided by municipalities.
