MEMPHIS, Tenn. — As temperatures climb, the city of Memphis is taking action to make sure residents stay safe.

On Thursday, the city said the Frayser Community Center will become a cooling center for those who need a place to escape the heat. The center opened July, 16, at 8 a.m. and will remain open until further notice.

The Frayser Community Center is located at 2555 St. Elmo Avenue.
