HRM Opens Additional Comfort Centre


Tuesday, December 23, 2008 - Early yesterday evening HRM opened a comfort centre at the Oyster Pond Fire station to assist residents of East Jeddore and area who are still without power.   The station is located at 51 Old Trunk Road, Oyster Pond.

To assist residents in the Tangier area who are still without power, HRM has opened another comfort centre at the Tangier Fire Station, located at 17559 Hwy #7, Tangier.

These centres are expected to remain open all day today. Ongoing assessments will be made throughout the day pending information from NS Power. 

HRM will continue to assess the need for further comfort centres based on updates from NS Power and requests from the community.

HRM would like to take this opportunity to remind residents that great neighbourhoods are made by great neighbours so please take a minute to check on your neighbours during this and future winter storms.
