Harboring Hot Air

Additional features include a heated, rubberized three-lane walking/running track, eight meeting rooms, a lounge, indoor courtyard area, cafe-style food services, and a pro shop.

Perhaps another area of interest lies in the technology to protect patrons.

Fitness equipment in the center.

First, an enhanced emergency-alert system has been installed throughout the facility, which allows important emergency messages to be broadcast via TV screens and a PA system.

Additionally, the center is outfitted with a Wellness Passport swipe-card system, which uses wall-mounted scanners to allow access to certain parts of the complex for those registered in programs or using facilities on a drop-in basis.

And what about the 2,132 photovoltaic panels added to the roof? The panels produce energy year-round and divert it back into the energy grid, generating roughly $450,000 annually for the city. That’s a lot of hot air saved on the facility’s hockey penalty boxes!
