CHICO, Calif. - With temperatures forecasted to fall below 32 degrees on Thanksgiving evening, the city of Chico announced an emergency warming center will be made available on Thursday, Nov. 28, at the Jesus Center in Chico.

The Jesus Center is located at 1297 Park Avenue. The warming center will be open from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. Friday morning. The warming center will operate within the dining room space, and there will be restrooms and hydration.

The City of Chico said they partner with the Jesus Center to operate a warming center during periods of extreme cold. The city added this occurs when dry bulb temperature falls below 32 degrees for one day. And a cooling center during periods of extreme heat, when temperatures rise above 100 degrees for two or more days.

“The City Council directed staff to ensure this venue is available to the public when extreme weather conditions exist," Chico City Manager, Mark Orme, stated. "It’s an honor to partner with the Jesus Center on this effort, and we appreciate their willingness to help the city accomplish this Council priority.”
