Cooling Centers  - Heat Safety & Support from 211

211 SUMMER HEAT POST: NJ Cooling Centers Staying Cool in Hot Weather See a listing of current emergency activations due to extreme heat. Throughout the warmer weather and if conditions arise that pose a threat to the homeless population, our staff is dedicated to updating our list of cooling centers. We will only include sites and messaging that we have received from official authorities such as state, county or municipal offices of emergency management. As we receive this information, it is posted. If you are not seeing cooling centers open in your county in the list below, it is because we have not yet received the information. As an alternative, consider visiting public buildings that are open and may offer relief from the heat such as public libraries, shopping malls, and municipal buildings. Learn more about summer heat.
