As high temperatures are expected in the coming days, Clackamas County officials have identified multiple cooling centers throughout the county for members of the public. Residents who do not have a cool place to be during peak temperatures are encouraged to visit a center and cool off, make new friends, relax and avoid the heat. A list of centers can be found below.

The county would also like to remind residents that plan to be outdoors to take precautions and protect themselves and others from sun exposure and the heat. Tips include:
