Bullhead City (Ariz.) – July 9, 2024 – The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for Bullhead City and surrounding areas today through Friday, July 12.
The desert heat can be very dangerous. Much of the forecast area means that everyone will be at risk due to long-duration heat and little to no overnight relief.
The City of Bullhead City will keep its Cooling Center open through July 12, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. at the Optimum Community Center, 2380 Optimum Way in Bullhead City, in rooms 801 and 802. There will be signs clearly posted. Dogs and cats will be permitted; however, they must be crated and be on a leash when outside.
(The Cooling Center location is formerly known as the Suddenlink Center).
Here are some other locations to escape the heat:
  • The Bullhead City Senior Center, 2285 Trane Road, is open on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for seniors (50+ years).
  • The Homeless Shelter – The Legacy Foundation Christine Stamper Center for Help & Hope – located at 1594 N. Oatman Road, is also open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
  • The Salvation Army, located at 1461 Palma Rd, is open to families and individuals Mondays through Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • The Bullhead City Municipal Pool, 2255 Trane Road, will be open for free when temperatures reach 120 degrees or more.
Remember to drink plenty of water even if you’re not thirsty to stay hydrated. Avoid outdoor activities during the hottest parts of the day. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light, loose fitting clothing and apply sunscreen often. Please take the time to check on elderly neighbors and pay extra attention to children and pets during this excessive heat warning.
The City will continue to monitor the weather and adjust the operation days and hours of the Cooling Center appropriately.
