Record Low Temps Means Pittsfield Will Be Opening Warming Stations
We did try to call North Adams City Hall to see if they would be opening any warming station, no one was answering their phone.
We are expected to see some dangerously low below freezing temperatures Tuesday.
In Pittsfield, the city has designated three warming centers in the city to assist the community members looking to get some relief from the cold.
The centers include the Ralph J. Froio Senior Center, 330 North St., Christian Center’s adjacent warming shelter, 193 Robbins Ave., and the Salvation Army, 298 West St. At each location, visitors will be able to have a warm beverage and charge devices, if necessary.
Each location will serve as a warming center during its normal hours of operations: 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. Senior Center; 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Christian Center; 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Salvation Army.
St. Joe’s, located at 2 Maplewood Ave., Is the only location that will continue to be available for overnight shelter services.
If you need more information call 413-320-6550 for more information.
For those dealing with weather-related emergencies after-hours, please call the Pittsfield Police Department who will provide further assistance specific to these matters.
Helpful tips from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency,
Dress in several layers of loose-fitting, lightweight clothing instead of a single heavy layer. Outer garments should be tightly woven and water repellent. Wear a hat, mittens
(not gloves), and sturdy waterproof boots to protect your arms, legs, hands, and feet. Cover your mouth with a scarf to protect your lungs.
