The Office of Emergency Management operated a shelter Tuesday night at Hal Henard Elementary School. The shelter at the Andrew Johnson Complex, also site of the Nathanael Greene Museum, is open now and will remain open through tomorrow morning, Emergency Management Director Bill Brown said.
“I feel like we’re going to have another really cold night tonight and it is going to be cold all day,” Brown said. “I intend for people to stay warm. That’s our objective.”
The shelter is open to the public. Cots will be provided. Those who use the shelter should bring blankets, pillows and snacks, Brown said.
The Emergency Operations Center of county Emergency Management office, located downstairs in the same building, will remain partially activated tonight, Brown said.
Pets will be allowed as long as they are closely supervised by owners, Brown said.
Six people spent Tuesday night at the shelter at Hal Henard Elementary School, Brown said.
