The Town of Yarmouth making sure people have a place to keep warm.

They’re opening the upstairs part of the Yarmouth Fire Hall on Pleasant Street tomorrow and Saturday night at 6 p.m, as the wind-chill could reach minus 40.

It will stay open overnight.

Mayor Pam Mood says it’s about keeping people safe.

“Important to note that it’s only a warming centre, not a comfort centre. You can come in, get coffee or tea and stay warm. If you’re there for the night, by all means bring a pillow or air mattress, but there will be no beds, just chairs and tables,” says Mood.

She says it’s the only resort for some, but reaching out to friends and neighbours should be first priority if you’re in need.

The SHYFT House says they’re expanding capacity for youth aged 16 to 24 who need to get out of the extreme cold.
