Belfast Community Warming Center

The Warming Center will be open to serve Belfast area residents should long term power outages occur during the winter months.

RSU 71 (Regional School Unit) and the City of Belfast have signed a contract to have the Warming Center located at the Troy Howard Middle School in Belfast where an auxiliary generator, gathering space, bathrooms and kitchen facilities will be made available for Warming Center use.

The Center will be officially open between 2pm and 6pm on days deemed by Emergency Management personnel. During that time residents will be welcome to visit for warmth, comfort, information, showers, electronics charging, and to share a community meal.

To realize this service, we are looking for volunteer teams to host the center during open hours.

Help includes assisting the cook and serving a meal, welcoming everyone with warmth of spirit, participating in music and games, homework help, clean-up, communicating and providing information related to the disaster services and needs on a community bulletin board.
