Cool Zones are places where senior citizens and people with special needs can comfortably escape mid-day summer heat and reduce their air-conditioning use, which helps save on energy costs.
Cool Zones are established by the County of San Diego Aging and Independence Services (AIS) and this year are open to the public from June 20 to October 15, 2013. There are currently more than 100 Cool Zones that provide service to some of the hottest areas in the San Diego region. They are located in senior centers and other public buildings.
