The Temple Office of Emergency Management Department is activating an emergency warming center in response to Monday’s freezing conditions.

The Transformation Station at 503 East Central Avenue will be open for men only from 5:00 PM Monday to 9:00 AM Tuesday. Women and children in need of warming resources should contact the Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500 or by visiting their offices at 209 East Avenue A.

Non-profit emergency warming centers in Temple provide a place to bring people that would normally be out in the elements on an extremely cold evening indoors during the coldest hours of the night. They provide a warm area for refuge, water, blankets, toilet facilities, and limited hygiene items.

Further information about the centers is available at 2-1-1.
