With temperatures expected to reach the mid 90s Friday, The Salvation Army is opening its cooling center to the public over the weekend.

The Cooling Center will be accessible all day Friday and during the day Saturday and Sunday if the heat index surpasses 90 degrees and overnight if the heat index reaches 100 degrees.

The same temperature guidelines will dictate future openings of the Cooling Center.

Patrons of the Cooling Center will have access to eight new bunk beds installed in The Salvation Army's gymnasium, installed Wednesday by volunteers from Dairyland Power Cooperative, Kaplan Professional Education and Trane Co. during the annual Day of Caring event.
