Severe Weather Shelters Open Over the Holidays

(Kitsap County, WA) -  Due to expected freezing temperatures, the Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management will activate the county’s Severe Weather Shelter Plan.

Both shelters will be open Thursday, December 24 through Sunday, December 27th.

The Bremerton location will open later than usual at 8 p.m. on the night of December 24th due to a special function in the building. The Kingston location will open at the regular time.

Hours of operation for all other nights at both locations will be from 6 PM until 7 AM. Guests will not be able to check into the shelter after 9 PM.

The locations are as follows:

Kingston Community Center
1212 NE State Hwy 104
Kingston, WA

The Salvation Army
832 – 6th Street
Bremerton, WA

The severe weather shelters will serve all citizens in our area who require safe overnight refuge where none is available. Further activations will be weather dependent. Stay tuned.
