A heat wave is hitting Southern California this weekend with areas like LA and the Inland Empire reaching the triple digits.

The city of Glendale is offering residents cooling stations to help them stay cool in these high temperatures.

The City of Glendale Community Services and Parks Department is offering their community centers to serve as cooling stations for seniors.

Any seniors who do not have access to air conditioned rooms can head over to these facilities to relax from the sweltering heat.

It is advised that if you have to be outside, that you take the necessary precautions to protect yourself from the heat.

• Avoid the sun from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. when the burning rays are strongest.

• Reduce physical activity.

• Wear a wide-brimmed hat and light colored lightweight, loose-fitting clothes when you are outdoors.

• Avoid hot, heavy meals that include proteins.

• Set your air conditioner between 75° to 80°. If you don’t have air-conditioning take a cool shower twice a day and visit a public air conditioned facility.

• Drink plenty of fluids even if you are not thirsty. Avoid alcohol and caffeine.

• Use sun screen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 if you need to be in the sun.

• Stay in shade whenever working outdoors.

• Don’t forget about your pets, they need plenty of water and shade.
