Cool Relief Centres are available in hot weather 

Beechworth Health Service and Indigo Shire Council have established Cool Relief Centres in Beechworth, Chiltern, Kiewa, Tangambalanga, Rutherglen and Yackandandah. Cool Relief Centres provide a refuge for people during extreme heat conditions.

Businesses and organisations with air conditioning and seating space are being asked to provide water for those seeking relief from the heat. If you are interested in becoming a Cool Relief Centre please contact Jess Johnston on 1300 365 005.
