 Who: The City of San José provides residents with a cool place to beat the high temperatures.
 Background: The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory that includes San José from Wednesday, June 5 to Thursday, June 6, 2024. Three sites will open longer than regular hours to serve as “cooling centers” during this time period.

While cooling down, residents have access to bottled water, free Wi-Fi, and outlets to charge devices. To ensure access and maintain space, all large belongings, such as bicycles, should remain outside.

During active heat advisories, Roosevelt Community Center is designated as pet-friendly and allows dogs and cats to stay in the cooling center with their accompanying owners. Roosevelt Community Center’s pet-friendly hours run from 1 to 9 p.m. only.

All pet owners are expected to follow the guidelines listed below.

Dogs must be leashed at all times. Cats must be brought in crates or in a harness if they are harness trained. Unrestrained pets are not allowed. Any pets that display aggression or disruptive behavior towards any other pet or attendee will be required to leave the center.

Owners are fully responsible for their pets and must bring their own food, water, and supplies to care for their pet.

There will be designated pet relief areas. All pet owners are responsible for assisting their pet with clean-up should any accidents occur.

San José community centers and libraries are also open during regular business hours for residents to stay cool. Visit for a list of community centers and for a list of libraries.
