July 2, 2013 4 p.m.

Stanislaus County emergency personnel are continuing to monitor the heat wave in the Central Valley. The public is encouraged to continue to follow StanEmergency on facebook and Twitter for updates.

A listing of cool locations for this week in Stanislaus County has been posted on the StanEmergency.com website. Locations for each city in the County appear on the site.

The Stanislaus County Office of Emergency Services continues to encourage people to:

* Be a good neighbor and check on vulnerable people including the elderly, those who live alone and people with medical issues. Consider checking twice a day. * “Have a Plan – Have a Place.” Everyone should have a plan and a place to go if their home temperatures reach over 90 degrees or if they do not have access to air conditioning. There are cool locations available like public libraries, or you can visit neighbors, friends and relatives with air conditioning. * Visit www.StanEmergency.com for tips on handling the hot weather and the public can get real-time information by following StanEmergency on Facebook and @StanEmergency on Twitter.

The Stanislaus County Office of Emergency Services will continue to monitor the heat wave over the next few days.
