NJ Cooling Centers

Staying Cool in Summer Heat

Our listing of cooling centers is compiled as resources become known to us through communication we receive from state and county government. Libraries, shopping malls, recreation centers, senior centers, municipal buildings and other public air conditioned spaces are good alternatives in every county if you are looking for a place to cool down.  Learn more about summer heat.

Offices of Emergency Management

The NJ Office of Emergency Management has links to all County Offices of Emergency Management.

County Websites and Alert Notification Systems

When temperatures soar it is customary that county government will make an effort to alert their residents by posting information about the opening of cooling centers on their county website (see direct links to county websites in table below.) County sites also often offer alert notifications, information about how to sign-up to receive email notifications during times of emergency events and announcements about government closings. We have provided links to county cooling center listings in the table below, when available. Other notifications are sent to us on a daily basis and are noted in the listing below this table.
