In summer 2023, we launched a Cooling Fund with Spokane Neighborhood Action Partners (SNAP) to aid low-income Spokane residents who reach out to SNAP for access freestanding A/C or fans to help with their cooling needs. Donate to the cooling fund!
How to stay healthy in the heat
Spokane Regional Health District and the Gonzaga Institute for Climate, Water, and the Environment worked together to develop information about the symptoms of extreme heat exposure and ways that to manage your exposure. Spokane Regional Health District’s website on Extreme Heat has more comprehensive information about how you might be impacted by heat.
