City of South Bend opens Century Center as warming site


The City of South Bend has opened the Century Center to serve as a warming site for residents who are without power and heat.

Residents can take shelter at the Century Center, 20 Doctor MLK Jr. Blvd, South Bend, beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 2, and continuing until the need subsides.

Because of the continuing threat of COVID-19, residents at the warming site will be required to wear a face covering  and observe social distancing to mitigate the spread of the virus.

The warming site will make available electrical outlets for residents who have medical or other needs. Pets cannot be brought into the Century Center.

Residents who need immediate medical attention or are experiencing an emergency should call 911.
