2017 Heat Emergency Plan and Outdoor Pools

Heat Emergency Information

When the temperature or heat index reaches 95 degrees in the District, District Government activates cooling centers. Residents and visitors should take extra steps to beat the heat by staying in the shade or air-conditioning, drinking plenty of water and visiting cooling centers.

You can seek relief from the heat at District recreation facilities, libraries, senior centers, or other air-conditioned buildings. DC Recreation Centers, DC Pools, DC Public Libraries and Senior Wellness Centers are all places to beat the heat and are open to the public. For more information on where to go, call 311.

Maps showing cooling centers are available here:

Note: Outdoor pools are open on Saturdays and Sundays only (12 pm to 6 pm) until Sunday, June 18.

It’s important to seek relief because hot and humid conditions can cause medical problems such as heat exhaustion and stroke. To learn about prevention measures and symptoms, click HERE. If you or someone you know needs transportation to a cooling center, call the hyperthermia hotline at (202) 399-7093.

DC Water and DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services (FEMS) officials remind the public unauthorized fire hydrant use is unlawful, dangerous and damaging.

Impacted City Services

The Department of Public Works trash and recycling crews will begin their collections at 6 am Monday, June 12, through Friday, June 16. To ensure trash and recycling are out for pick-up at the earlier time, residents can put their items out starting at 6:30 pm the evening before collection. Trash and recycling containers should be removed from public space by 8 pm on the day of collection.

Throughout the summer, when the temperature is predicted to be 90 degrees or higher or the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments announces unhealthy air quality (Code Orange or Code Red days), DPW collection crews will begin their work at 6 am.
