I was just asked to notify residents that the Box 100 volunteers are opening the Multipurpose Building behind City Hall again tonight because of severe weather approaching. The building will be available for residents seeking shelter beginning at 10:00 p.m. and will remain open as long as needed.
Box 100 is a volunteer unit that supports first responder personnel when they are on the scene of major emergencies. Their work is not unlike that of the Red Cross in that they provide shelter, nourishment, water, etc. in times of need, but their efforts are mostly directed toward aiding fire, police, and rescue squad personnel.
Meanwhile, stay safe everyone.
