With plummeting temperatures forecasted for the upcoming week, the City wants to remind residents that the Peoria Police and Peoria Fire Departments have options for warming centers.

The Peoria Police Department lobby, 600 SW Adams Street, normally closed to the public from 5:00 pm to 9:00 am, will remain a warming center, regardless of the time of day.

All Peoria Fire Department Fire Stations are open to the public until 10:00 pm, but persons seeking help or heat can go to any Fire Station at any time.  It’s important to note that if the crew is sent on a call, any persons using the station as a warming center will have to temporarily leave during that time.  Locations of Fire Stations may be found on the City’s website http://www.peoriagov.org/fire-department/

Any visitors to City buildings will have their temperatures checked and be required to wear a mask, per the City’s COVID-19 policy to protect staff and visitors.
