Are You Keeping Your Cool?

You’d literally have to be under a rock to not know we are in the middle of a heat wave in Southern Oregon.  Going underground might be the only place to be naturally cool right now.  Knowing not everyone can afford air conditioning to stay cool in this persistent heat,  Paragon Orthopedic Center is concerned about our citizens, so today we are talking about the help you can get to get keep your cool.  In Grants Pass, there are multiple access points along the river at parks, such as Riverside, Tussing, Indian Mary, Reinhart, White Horse, Fish Hatchery, and Schroeder.  Also found in Grants Pass are water parks for children at Riverside and Morrison Parks.  KDRV has an article that details cooling centers in Medford, Ashland, Talent, and Siskiyou County.  Dialing 211 and entering your zip code should connect you with cooling centers in your area, although the line might keep you on hold as there are many people wanting this information right now.  Drink lots of fluids to stay hydrated, perform demanding tasks early in the day when possible, and do what you can to stay out of the heat.  Be safe Southern Oregon!
