For more information, contact: Rhonda Jackson, Public Information Officer, Prince George's County Office of Emergency Management, Cell: 240-694-7474 Previously designated Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) “Warming Center” facilities will be closed Residents Should Call 2-1-1 to find Shelter Landover, MD: The Prince George’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) announced that the County’s “warming centers” that were located at Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) facilities have closed. OEM reminds residents that warming centers are temporary places where people can go to warm up. Shelters are designed for overnight or extended stays when needed. OEM is recommending that if any residents need a facility to take shelter they should call 2-1-1. “Our goal is to ensure that no Prince Georgian is without shelter during this blizzard,” said Prince George’s County Emergency Manager Ronnie Gill. “We need anyone who is in need or knows of someone in need of a shelter to call 2-1-1. Operators will then refer callers to designated shelters throughout the County.” For the latest updates and information please go to www.princegeorgescountymd.gov, sign up for Alert Prince George’s Text alerts here, and follow #PGCSnow on social media.
