Emergency overnight accommodations available during extreme cold

December 15, 2022

The County has partnered with the local Salvation Army to offer emergency overnight accommodations during extreme cold conditions.

“Extreme cold puts everyone at risk. We welcome the opportunity to work with the County to make sure people in our community have a place to go when it’s too cold to stay outside,” says David Dale, Pastor / Captain with the Salvation Army.

Emergency overnight accommodations will be available when Environment Canada forecasts a temperature of -15° C or colder, or a wind chill of -20° C or colder, for Prince Edward County. If people need shelter, they can call the Salvation Army at 613.476.3159 to arrange accommodations. The program is supported financially by the Prince Edward-Lennox and Addington Social Services.

The County will communicate the extreme cold weather alert to local media and share the notice through its mailing list, Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The municipality’s emergency control group developed the extreme cold weather procedure based on community need and practices in similar-sized municipalities. For more information, contact the County of Prince Edward’s Customer Service Desk at 613.476.2148 extension 1023, 613.962.9108 extension 1023, info@pecounty.on.ca.
