Multnomah County will open three daytime cooling centers starting Friday, July 5, at noon, and extend hours into the evening at two large libraries — providing respite for community members as a dangerous heatwave threatens to send temperatures well over 100 degrees. 

Starting Friday at noon, people who don’t have a cool place to be should strongly consider spending time at a cooling center or another cool space listed on the interactive map.

TriMet will provide free rides to anyone going to a cooling space who can’t otherwise pay their fare starting at 10 a.m. Friday — two hours before cooling centers open. Anyone needing additional transportation help should call 211.

The three cooling centers will be open noon to 10 p.m. Friday, July 5:

Cook Plaza, 19421 S.E. Stark St., Gresham

Portland Covenant Church, 4046 N.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Portland

The Hugo, 6221 N.E. 82nd Ave., Portland
