TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson is expecting record heat this week, with highs forecast well over 110 all week long.

Local leaders, advocates and health experts are reminding Tucsonans of the dangers of such weather -- heatstroke can hit faster than you expect and can be devastating.

If you don't have a safe place to cool down, there are a number of free cooling centers available to anyone who might need them. Check out the map below for details, as provided by the Tucson Pima Collaboration to End Homelessness:

Mayor Regina Romero requested to open additional cooling centers across Tucson.

There are six locations, one in each Ward, which will be open every day through this Friday, June 18, from 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., according to the mayor's office. Masks are encouraged and the centers will have a reduced capacity.

The centers will resume operations after Friday on days with temperatures over 110 degrees.
