The B.C. government is funding 12 extreme weather shelter spaces in Salmon Arm this winter to help people whose health and safety may be threatened by cold weather.
The temporary spaces are available until March 31, 2016 as extreme weather alerts are issued in Salmon Arm. The 12 spaces are at Lighthouse Inn from the Cold, 441 Third St. SW.
“Extreme winter conditions can be deadly and it is critical that vulnerable people in Salmon Arm have a warm and dry place to stay,” Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo said. “Volunteers in our community work hard to ensure that temporary shelter is available during bitter weather.”
