Volunteers with the Salvation Army giving tips on how to prep for these chilly days and nights.

Their mission is to keep everyone off the streets, especially when it's under 32 degrees.

The organization has several ways for those in need to get the shelter assistance, starting with a warm bed.

Freezing weather opens the door for additional inclement weather cots or gold cots for the public to stay in.

If the cold weather stays during the day, the shelter opens up warming stations for people to come in and stay out of the freezing weather.

"I believe last year we had one death due to the cold weather and that's not anything that anyone wants to see so we are trying to do everything it takes to prevent that," Erika Hitt said.

Women's shelter: 1614 Ave. J
