Plano Overnight Warming Station will be Open TODAY, Saturday, December 24, and remain open throughout the day tomorrow, December 25.
The Warming Station is located at The Salvation Army - Plano, 3528 E. 14th St., Plano, TX 75074.
The doors are now open.
Because most of the guests have remained at the warming station today, buses will not resume pickups until the hours of 6:30PM-9PM from the DART Parker Road Station. The buses will only make occasional rounds at that time.

(Because of construction, there will be no pickups from Harrington Library at this time.)

The Warming Station doors close at 10 PM. Later guests are only let in with a police es**rt.

NOTE: The Warming Station will also remain open throughout the day tomorrow. Guests who do not have work or other obligations do not have to leave and may remain there throughout the next night.

The Plano Overnight Warming Station (POWS) provides short-term emergency housing to those in our community who would otherwise be sleeping outside during freezing weather.

If you're cold, your pets are cold too! Bring them inside and be sure to provide fresh water.

What is the wind chill temperature?

The wind chill temperature is how cold people and animals feel when outside. Wind chill is based on the rate of heat loss from exposed skin caused by wind and cold. As the wind increases, it draws heat from the body, driving down skin temperature and eventually the internal body temperature. Therefore, the wind makes it FEEL much colder.

If the temperature is 0°F and the wind is blowing at 15 mph, the wind chill is -19°F. At this wind chill temperature, exposed skin can freeze in 30 minutes!

Food for Thought from a Plano Resident . ( I heard from high authorities on TV that the control of this virus was up to us, the community).
So here it is, I am the community and here is my plan. I hope my local authorities are listening too.

How to help the ill and the economy at the same time .
By Yolanda Orta-Swope.

It might be important for a serious ( massive and immediate ) effort to identify those who already have immunity against this virus . That would mean a serious, organized, well funded , prioritized, emergency plan to measure the antibodies (defenses) in the blood of those who already had the disease and among the general population ( because many have had the illness without symptoms and probably have good defenses).

This plan serves 2 important and crucial purposes :

1-) Those with immunity can go back to work right now. As more recover from the virus, more will go back and join the work force now ( immediately) with no risk to anybody . ( instead of keeping all of us locked up for months ).
This is the quickest and safest way I can think of to recuperate the economy quickly.

2-) Those who have recovered from the virus , and have antibodies against it, can (and should) donate blood/plasma to be given to those who are sick and at risk of dying. Those on ventilators . This might be one of the only hopes for a quick treatment at this time. ( every recovered person who is otherwise healthy , should donate blood).

This should be a priority plan ( just my opinion).

Of course, assuming we build immunity after getting the infection ( which is probably the case).
And By the way, we should know this by now.

What do you think?
I manage a Home Health Agency in Plano. How do i get PPE for my nurses and HHA's?
Plano EM,
