Warming Station

Anniston, AL – As freezing temperatures loom over Anniston, the City is taking proactive measures to ensure the well-being of its residents. Starting this evening, a public warming station will open its doors at The Bridge, located at Anniston First United Methodist Church (1400 Noble St, Anniston, AL 36201). The station aims to provide refuge during the chilly nights, operating from 5:00 PM CST to 8:00 AM CST each night until Friday, December 22, 2023.

In response to the anticipated weather conditions, the warming station will extend its hours on Wednesday, December 20, 2023, opening at 6:00 PM CST. The possibility of further extensions will be evaluated based on evolving weather forecasts.
