DeKalb County plans to re-open two warming centers for residents to use overnight as temperatures once again drop near freezing Wednesday.
The centers will be open from 7 p.m. Wednesday to 7 a.m. Thursday:
- Fire Station 3, 100 N. Clarendon Ave., Avondale Estates, GA 30002
- Fire Station 6, 2342 Flat Shoals Road, Atlanta, GA 30316
Residents can also visit First United Methodist Church of Tucker at 5095 LaVista Road starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The church is opening as a “no-freeze shelter” to provide food and a place to shower and sleep.
Temperatures are expected to dip into the low 30s Wednesday night, but no precipitation is expected. The warming centers were also open Tuesday night, when temperatures dropped into the 20s.
DeKalb officials encouraged residents to bring pets inside, use safety when using alternative heat sources and disconnect outdoor hoses.
Residents can also sign up for DeKalb’s emergency notification system, CodeRED, by visiting www.dekalbcountyga.gov and clicking the CodeRED logo at the bottom of the page.
