It is that time of year again when the temperatures in Utah heat up and the National Weather Service (NWS) has created a new heat risk warning system to alert the public and help them avoid heat-related hazards. The NWS has partnered with the Salt Lake County Health Department as well as the Surveyor’s
Office who created an
online tool that allows a user to easily locate public places to cool off near them. The closest cooling centers can be found by entering an address, using a locate tool, or simply clicking anywhere on the map and the results include additional information as well as directions to each place.
The Heat Risk program and the interactive map were recently
featured on NPR.
