The Salvation Army Midland Division Opens Cooling Centers with Missouri and Illinois to Battle Summer Heat

Jun 17, 2021

The Salvation Army Midland Division is dedicated to the protection of our staff members and the clients we serve. It has opened daytime cooling centers in Missouri and Illinois after the Excessive Heat Advisory issued by the National Weather Service, with operation guidelines to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our facilities.

Cooling center locations are activated when a Heat Advisory is issued, which is when the Heat Index is expected to reach 105 degrees or temperature reach 100 degrees. A Heat Warning is issued when the heat index is expected to reach 110 degrees for two consecutive days without dropping below 75 degrees, or if a Heat Advisory is expected to last four or more days.

The Salvation Army Corps will operate cooling centers in collaboration with local coalitions. A Corps is one of The Salvation Army’s worship centers. The locations and hours of the cooling centers are listed below:
