With forecasted highs hitting over 100 degrees every day this week, the City of Surprise reminds residents that we are a Heat Relief Network partner. The City provides hydration and refuge stations for those in need of a place to cool off during Arizona’s hot summer months.

 

The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) coordinates mapping of the Heat Relief Network.


Designated stations offer indoor refuge from heat during the day, as well as drinking fountains or bottled water. Stations can be found at the following Surprise locations:


Surprise Resource Center - 12425 W. Bell Rd., Building A, Suite 124

Surprise Fire-Medical Station #301 - 16750 N. Village Drive East (FS 301)

Hollyhock Library - 15844 N. Hollyhock St.

Northwest Regional Library - 16089 N. Bullard Ave.

The Salvation Army Sun Cities Valley Corps - 17420 N. Avenue of the Arts Blvd.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more people die in the U.S. from heat than all other natural disasters combined.


You can help those in need of relief by donating water bottles, sun screen, sun glasses and hats at either the Surprise Resource Center or Surprise Fire – Medical Station #301. The fire station is also accepting diapers.
