Today marks the opening of the county’s "Cool Zone" program, administered by the Health & Human Services Agency. The aim of Cool Zone is to provide seniors and low-income individuals without access to air conditioning a place to congregate during the summer’s hottest months.

Over 100 sites, mostly comprised of libraries, community recreation centers, and senior centers will participate in the program. A list of sites and hours of operation is available at coolzones.org. The web page also states that individuals unable to reach a facility on their own may be able to request a free electric fan or bus passes to reach a public air-conditioned building. All sites will be marked with a logo featuring a polar bear within a blue diamond and the words “Cool Zone.”

The program, in its 10th year, is scheduled to run through September 30.

Don't we have some of our hottest Santa Ana days in October or even November? Can someone explain why this program ends on September 30?
