As the extreme heat wave continues this week, the cities of Davis and Woodland have announced the opening of cooling centers to help local residents beat the heat.

The city of Davis will have the following cooling centers/zones open:

* Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St.: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, 10 a.m to 5:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Closed on the Fourth of July.

Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and Friday. Closed on the Fourth of July. During periods of excessive heat, any member of the public is welcome at the Senior Center.

* Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St:. 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the Fourth of July.

* Davis Community Meals Shelter and Resource Center, 1111 H St.: Extended hours through 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The city of Woodland offers a cooling center at the Woodland Community and Senior Center, 2001 East St., from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and Friday.

Swimming pools also are open around Davis:

* Arroyo Pool, 2000 Shasta Drive: 1 to 5 p.m. and 7:15 to 9 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; and 1 to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays;

* Manor Pool, 1525 Tulip Lane: 1 to 5 p.m. and 7:15 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays; 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; and 1 to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays; and

UC Davis Recreation Pool: 1 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays; noon to 7 p.m Thursdays through Sundays.

Take precautions to prevent heat-related illness:

* Ensure that you have ample water on hand. If you plan to be camping or at outdoor events, make an effort to find shade and pack extra water.

* Stay cool indoors in air-conditioned facilities, especially during the hottest part of the day. Residents who do not have adequate air conditioning should find a friend or relative to stay with during the hottest parts of the day, or another location where air conditioning is available such as a public building, shopping center, restaurant or movie theater.

* Pace yourself and avoid heavy exertion in the heat

* Wear lightweight, loose fitting clothing, a broad-brimmed hat and sunscreen

* Avoid hot foods and heavy meals

* If you become lightheaded, feel confused or experience any other symptoms of heat exhaustion, get to a cool area until you feel better

* Never leave a person or animal in a parked car; temperatures inside a vehicle can rise to dangerous levels in minutes

* Don’t forget pets and livestock, they need extra water and shade

* Check on neighbors who may need assistance.
