BFN 48 Hour Alert - All Volunteers - Coordinators - Board Members:

Beds for Freezing Nights (BFN) is issuing a 48 Hour Alert indicating that extreme weather conditions are forecast Friday Feb. 24 and Saturday Feb. 25.

Volunteers are needed to staff the warming center for this activation in the event the BFN warming center opens. If activation occurs, the center will stay activated after Feb.25 if temperatures stay below 30 degrees and enough volunteers are available.

All volunteers are requested to confirm your availability or non-availability in the event the BFN warming center opens. Please e-mail the communications coordinator at info@freezingnights.com as soon as possible with ALL date(s) and shift(s) you will be available. It greatly helps scheduling if you indicate multiple shift availability, and if you describe availability by SHIFT, not by time (e.g., Shift One - not "Tuesday evening", because that could mean either Shift One or Shift Two). Shift One = set up/intake (6 pm-11 pm); Shift Two = overnight (11 pm -4 am); Shift Three = wake up/close down (4 am-8 am). For more information, refer to the procedures manual you received at training; it is also available online at www.freezingnights.com.

Activation is set to be at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are not notified by 6 p.m. Thursday Feb. 23 that you will be needed, you do not need to be on duty the following evening.

Thank you for your sharing your gifts of time and service.
