Keep Warm and Safe This Winter Season

Bitter cold temperatures are more than an inconvenience; they pose a serious threat to health and safety. The City of Chicago has many services available to help residents weather the winter months.

Call 3-1-1 to:
•Locate a Warming Center near you
•Request a well-being check for someone who may be suffering from extreme weather
•Report inadequate heat in a... residential building
•Learn about programs that assist with home heating costs
•Connect to shelter and supportive services

Protect Yourself and Family:
•Wear several layers of loose, warm clothing
•Keep your head, hands and feet covered when outdoors
•Avoid alcoholic beverages
•Recognize the symptoms of hypothermia: stiff muscles, shivering, puffy or
swollen face, cold skin, slow breathing and mental confusion
•Never use an extension cord with a space heater. Ovens should not be used to heat homes

CITY WARMING CENTERS

A Warming Center is a heated facility where Chicagoans can go to find safe refuge from extreme weather.

The Chicago Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) operates six Warming Centers during work weekdays when temperatures dip below 32 degrees. Additional facilities are opened as needed including Senior Centers, libraries, and Park District buildings. The Warming Centers that DFSS operates are not open on weekday holidays unless specifically indicated. This is why it is so important to contact 3-1-1 for Warming Center information, especially during off hours or on holidays.

The Garfield Center, located at 10 S. Kedzie Avenue, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to connect residents to supportive services and emergency shelter.

Call 3-1-1 to locate a Warming Center in your area.
