SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – The City of San Antonio has opened cooling centers as the forecast calls for high temperatures near 100 degrees Thursday and Friday.

San Antonio Metro Health is advising adults over 65, children under 4 and individuals with pre-existing medical conditions, such as heart disease, to protect yourself from the sun and drink plenty of water.  Heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke are possible health effects. Warning signs of heat stroke include: red, hot, and moist or dry skin, no sweating, a strong rapid pulse or a slow weak pulse, nausea or confusion. If a child exhibits any of these signs, cool the child rapidly with cool water, not an ice bath, and call 911 or your local emergency number immediately.

You’re also encouraged to call and check on your neighbors, friends or family members who may be at high risk.

 If you see a child or pet locked in a hot car or in the back of a truck, take note of the car’s description (including a license plate number) and call 911 or 207-SAPD immediately.  If regarding a pet, call Animal Care Services at 311. Per city ordinance, both Police and Animal Care Officers have the right to break a car’s window if a child or animal is endangered inside a vehicle.

You can visit the Metro Health or the San Antonio Office of Emergency Management websites for a listing of cooling centers.
