Cooling Stations Open To Public To Help Beat Oklahoma Heat

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

It’s summer, which means the temperatures are only getting hotter.

According to our Oklahoma Weather Experts, the temperatures for the foreseeable future are all above 90, with Friday and Saturday reaching triple digits.

But it’s what if feels like that could be dangerous.  Thursday, for example, we reached 100, but with the heat index, it felt more like 106.

EMSA responded to five suspected heat-related calls. The patients ranged from 16 to 65; two were taken to hospitals.

EMSA and the Tulsa Health Department are doing what they can to keep everyone safe by offering tips to stay cool and making sure everyone is aware of the several cooling stations around the city.

They said it’s important to drink plenty of water or electrolyte replacement drinks several hours before, and during, getting out in the heat.

Wearing light-colored, loose-fitting clothing and a hat are suggested if you plan to go outside.

They also suggest avoiding any alcohol or caffeine.

Finally, they offer a list of cooling stations that are open to the public. You can see the full list below.
