Despite Heat, Few People Use Dubuque Cooling Centers

DUBUQUE, Iowa - Unless you love the heat, chances are you've had a few choice words about the weather lately.

In an effort to help residents avoid that misery, the city of Dubuque designates three downtown locations as cooling centers: the Mystique Ice Arena, the Carnegie- Stout Public Library and the Multicultural Family Center.

For a short heat wave, the city offers up buildings with air conditioning that are already open to the public.

"A cooling center is not the same as an emergency shelter or a treatment center. Those kind of shelters would come into play if we had several days in a row of extreme and excessive heat," said Dubuque Public Health Specialist Mary Rose Corrigan.
