Heat wave: City offers ‘cooling center’
July 28, 2009 · 3:45 PM
In the event of a heat wave, vulnerable populations are encouraged to use the Federal Way Community Center as a “cooling center.” Heat waves are always of great concern for the elderly, the very young, or those with medical conditions that could lead to heat stroke or other problems.
The community center, located at 876 S. 333rd St., will be open as a cooling center for citizens of all ages during its regular operating hours 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. weekdays, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.
Basic seating areas, water fountains and restrooms will be available at no cost. No pets are allowed, except for service animals. Day-use passes are available for purchase if people wish to use the pool, workout equipment or other amenities.
