Responding to an excessive heat warning in the Southwest, the Salvation Army has set up heat relief stations throughout the Phoenix area.

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, crews will man 14 stations offering a cool place to escape the heat, as well as water for rehydration.

An additional mobile hydrating station will offer assistance in communities experiencing high demand.

A spokesperson for the Salvation Army urged residents to check on neighbors who might be at risk of dehydration or heat-related health issues.

As long as the excessive heat warning is in place, the stations will remain open.
