Severe-weather shelter will open Friday in Bremerton

BREMERTON — Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management has activated the county’s Severe Weather Shelter Plan because of impending freezing weather conditions.

This year there is only one shelter this year: Bremerton Food Line, 1600 12th St., Bremerton. It will open Friday at 6 and close Saturday morning at 7. It will re-open again Saturday and Sunday nights.

Hours of operation will be 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. Guests will not be able to check into the shelter after 9 p.m.

The shelter will serve all residents in our area who require safe overnight refuge where none is available.
