Cold kills: Use and promote the Hypothermia Shelter Hotline

When the temperature or wind chill is 32°F or below, the District issues a Hypothermia Alert.   The notice appears on the Department of Human Services website (in "DHS Popular Links") and is emailed and texted out by HSEMA.

Your organization can promote use of DC's Hypothermia Shelter Hotline phone number simply by adding this image (see below) to your blog or website.   Want a different look?   Design your own.   But no matter which image you use, please advertise the Hypothermia Shelter Hotline number because cold kills.

When the temperature or wind chill is 32°F or below, the District issues a Hypothermia Alert.   The notice appears on the Department of Human Services website (in "DHS Popular Links") and is emailed and texted out by HSEMA.

If you see a homeless individual or family, call the Hypothermia Shelter Hotline, 1-800-535-7252.
