Cooling Shelter Announcement: the Medford Senior Center will be open and act as a Severe Event cooling shelter. The cooling shelter will be open Saturday through Sunday (July 24 - July 25) from 12 – 8 PM at the Medford Senior Center, located at 510 E. Main Street. 

The cooling shelter will provide water, cool resting area, restrooms, popsicles, snacks, and cooling area and water for pets. Individuals may come and go, with a facility capacity of 90 guests.
