We would like for the community to establish warming centers. During a limited, weather-driven emergency, preselected warming centers would be open on a temporary basis. A trigger of cold temperature and/or rain would be used. This would remain simple: to give those in danger of dying during these brief events shelter from the storm. We ask that everyone do what they can and what they feel needs to be done to bring this idea to reality. Storms and cold weather are imminent. We can’t wait another month to do this. We need warming centers now. – Ken Williams, county social worker, and Lynne Jahnke, MD
