Patterson residents without air conditioning looking for relief from the more than 100 degree temperatures this weekend will not find cooling centers open in any of the county's cities, according to Patterson and West Stanislaus Fire Chief Steve Hall.

Temperatures are expected to exceed triple digits over the next week, peaking at 108 on Monday, July 1.

While no cooling centers will be open by the City of Patterson, Patterson Aquatic Center hours will be extended by two hours over the weekend.

The Patterson Aquatic Center will be open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. In addition, the Hammon Senior Center--which is air conditioned--will be open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. for community members seeking relief from the season's high temperatures.

The Patterson Fire Department has been out in the public talking with seniors at various locations throughout the city about the high temperatures and how residents can protect themselves from the heat.

For information regarding the aquatic center: 895-8084

For information regarding the senior center: 895-8082

If anyone feels ill or injured from the heat call 911 immediately, Hall said.
