Heating and Cooling Shelters

Augusta maintains heating and cooling shelters within several Recreation, Parks, and Facilities Buildings across the county. These sites are available during times of extreme temperatures so that citizens may take shelter from the extreme conditions.

The sites are listed below, or you can use the city's Public Facilities interactive online tool in order to view pictures and get a map to the facilities. You can click on the icon for each location to view information about the facility. The Heating and Cooling Shelters link to the left will take your browser to this tool, which you can use from your desktop or mobile device.
