Take Caution During Extreme Summer Heat

With temperatures approaching 100 degrees in Golden Valley June 20, the Golden Valley Fire Department (GVFD) wants to remind residents to use caution while spending time outdoors to avoid heat-related illness.

The GVFD recommends to stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible, as air-conditioning is the number one way to protect yourself against heat-related illness. If your home is not air-conditioned, reduce your risk for heat-related illness by spending time in public facilities that are air-conditioned and using air conditioning in vehicles. 

Other extreme heat safety tips include:

  • do not rely on a fan as your main cooling device during an extreme heat event,
  • drink more water than usual and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink,
  • check on a friend or neighbor and have someone do the same for you,
  • don’t use the stove or oven to cook—it will make you and your house hotter.

Residents seeking air-conditioned buildings should reference Hennepin County's interactive map of places that can provide relief from the summer heat. Three options located in Golden Valley include Brookview Golden Valley (316 Brookview Pkwy), the Hennepin County Library (830 Winnetka Ave), and Theodore Wirth Beach (3200 Glenwood Ave).
