Extreme Cold Prompts Activation of Valpo Senior Care Pgm

Share this post

The Valparaiso Police Department has activated their Senior Care Program and will be calling seniors that have registered with the police department. The activation of this program is due to the dangerously cold temperatures.  In Valparaiso individuals can contact the Red Cross, Valparaiso Police, and Valparaiso Fire Departments if they need assistance due to the cold conditions. The New Creation Shelter located at 653 Axe Avenue is being used as a warming shelter for individuals.  
Valparaiso Police say the elderly are the highest risk during the cold weather and neighbors, friends and family should contact the elderly during these types of conditions to check their status.  Everyone is reminded that long periods of exposure to the cold temperatures can be extremely dangerous and even deadly. If you have mechanical problems with your vehicle remember to stay with your vehicle. Police also say use extreme caution when using portable heaters.
