Salvation Army Sets Up Heat Relief Stations Around Metro Phoenix

Responding to an excessive heat warning in the Southwest, the Salvation Army has set up heat relief stations throughout the Phoenix area.

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, crews will man 14 stations offering a cool place to escape the heat, as well as water for rehydration.

An additional mobile hydrating station will offer assistance in communities experiencing high demand.

A spokesperson for the Salvation Army urged residents to check on neighbors who might be at risk of dehydration or heat-related health issues.

As long as the excessive heat warning is in place, the stations will remain open.
