The City of Bend has issued a declaration allowing the use of extra emergency shelters.    This will go into effect if the two existing homeless shelters reach capacity of 175. This declaration allows some of the City's fire code restrictions pertaining to homeless shelters to be waived due to a weather emergency, but a facility must still be approved. “The goal is no dead bodies. It’s a very low bar to set, but it's something we can all, if we all work together, maintain safety and security for anybody who happens to find themselves in this bad weather.   But if you see someone out there who needs shelter, have them come to the Bethlehem Inn, there is somebody here 24-hours a day.” The Bethlehem Inn's Chris Clouart says he has already called the Boys and Girls Club, and they are on standby. If the Bethlehem Inn reaches capacity, then the Boys and Girls Club can be used as a shelter
