[ARCHIVED] City monitoring incoming cold front

alerts

Residents urged to take precautions ahead of potential freeze

The City of Killeen Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management has been actively monitoring the incoming cold front and coordinating with city leaders and partners since Monday, December 27. The city expects to open a warming center both Saturday and Sunday night for freezing temperatures. If the forecast continues to warrant a need, the City will announce the location and times of the warming center sometime on Thursday.

City Warming Centers are set up to offer temporary relief from the cold and do not offer full sheltering services. 

In anticipation of the cold weather, residents are urged to begin preparing now. 

Prepare your home: Install weather stripping and insulation; insulate water pipes that run along exterior walls; Inspect and clean fireplaces and chimneys; have a safe alternate heating source; check all of your smoke detectors, or install them if you don’t have them; check or install carbon monoxide detectors to prevent poisoning; and bring in your pets from the cold.

Prepare your vehicle: Service the radiator and maintain antifreeze level; keep your gas tank full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines; and use a wintertime formula in your windshield washer.

Be prepared: Stock drinking water and food that needs no cooking or refrigeration; charge your phone and portable charging devices; remember to have plenty of food and water for your pets; and have an up-to-date emergency kit.
