snowstatue-fullDue to the extreme cold temperatures expected tonight, the Owen Sound Police Service will be making the  public "Barclay Room" of the police building available as an emergency warming station between 7:00 PM and 7:00 AM.

Anyone requiring use of the emergency warming station is asked to come to the front lobby of the Owen Sound Police Service, where they will be directed to the Barclay Room. Serious health problems can result from prolonged exposure to the cold. The most common cold-related problems are hypothermia and frostbite.

Indoor Safety:

  • Use fireplaces, wood stoves, or other combustion heaters only if they are properly vented to the outside and do not leak flue gas into the indoor air space.
  • Install a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector in your home.
