West Hollywood opens publicly available cooling centers whenever heat waves pose a danger to the public.

There is also free transportation to Plummer Park with the Cityline Service, which is an ADA-accessible shuttle. It operates from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday to Saturday. Shuttles depart every 30 minutes.

The city advises residents to stay safe, as high temperatures coupled with low humidity can be perilous for health. Arduous exercise especially from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. should be avoided, and people, even pets, should not be left in a car. To avoid body core temperatures from rising, one can also wear light colored, loose fitted clothes and stay hydrated.
