BEND, OR -- The city of Bend declared an emergency late yesterday, regarding the need for more shelter space.  With temperatures dipping into the low twenties in Bend, and even colder in outlying areas, Bend City Manager Eric King declared the emergency.  The original recommendation came from Bend Fire Marshal Larry Medina and comes due to the potential need for the city to create temporary cold-weather shelters.

 

This declaration runs through the end of February, and goes into effect when temperatures are expected to dip below 25 degrees and area shelters are full.
