Here is the most recent tips and a short list of COOL ZONES around San Diego County today, September 3, 2022.
**Cool Zones Fan Program and Transportation**
Even with Cool Zone sites opening, not all older adults or persons with disabilities can leave home to escape the heat. Homebound individuals and those who decide to stay home due to the risk of COVID-19, may not be able to take advantage of traditional Cool Zone sites.
To help these community members beat the heat, the County of San Diego, in partnership with SDG&E, provides free electric fans to those who are 60 years of age and older, or disabled, living on limited incomes. To be eligible, a resident must not have access to air-conditioning at their residence. To learn more about the Cool Zones Fan Program or to request a fan, please call 2-1-1 or click here to complete a fan eligibility survey.
Additionally, people in San Diego County unable to get to a Cool Zone location without transportation assistance, such as older adults, people with disabilities, or people who are homebound, can call 2-1-1 to be connected to a transportation or rideshare service at no cost.
