The city of Santa Clarita and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health are reminding residents to take necessary precautions as the summer sets in and temperatures rise to uncomfortable numbers.

To help residents beat the heat, two "Cooling Center" locations will be open to offer relief.

The Valencia Library will be open as a Cooling Center Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Senior Center will be open as a Cooling Center Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Fridays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"When it is extremely hot outside, precautions should be taken, especially by people like the elderly and children who are more sensitive to the heat," said Mayor Laurene Weste. "Our local Cooling Centers will provide the community with a comfortable place to cool down."

Both locations will be open during the extreme heat weather conditions. If you are planning to visit one of these Cooling Centers, it is advisable that you call in advance to make sure there is still seating available.

The Valencia Library is located at 23743 West Valencia Blvd., Santa Clarita 91355.

The Senior Center is located at 22900 Market Street, Santa Clarita 91355.
