City works to keep those most vulnerable safer in high temperatures

The city of Glendale continues its support of the Heat Relief Network this summer by providing hydration stations, refuge locations and water donation sites throughout the community. Valley municipalities, nonprofit organizations, faith-based communities, the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) and area businesses work together as part of this network to help those who may be most vulnerable to heat-related illness or death.

Heat relief sites in Glendale include the Glendale Community Action Program (CAP) and Public Housing offices, as well as the Glendale Municipal Courts building. There are also heat relief sites at the Salvation Army-Glendale Corps and the Salvation Army-Valley of the Sun Korean Corps offices.

Hydration stations and water donation sites can be found on the interactive heat relief map provided by MAG.

The city of Glendale also offers several additional excessive heat-related programs, which include a Glendale emergency home repair program and utility assistance. Utility assistance is offered through the CAP office for qualifying residents. The emergency home repair program helps low-to-moderate income households in need of repairs such as AC unit or evaporative cooler repair. The city partners with Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona to offer this program. For additional information, contact Habitat for Humanity by phone at 623-583-2417 ext. 108 or visit https://habitatcaz.org/neighborhood-revitalization/ehr/.
