Please share this information, if you are able, with anyone you know that is still without power. The Town of Caledon has opened a 4th Warming Centre and 3 of the 4 are open 24/7. The information below includes which centres are open for overnight use as well as instructions on what to bring along.

Storm Update: Caledon Opens Fourth Warming Centre

The Town of Caledon continues to deal with widespread power outages and winter storm conditions.

“Since the storm began we have been dealing with an extraordinary situation,” said Mayor Marolyn Morrison. “Our principal activity has been to clear roads and sidewalks so that Caledon residents can travel freely and crews can restore power. Our concern now turns to our citizens who are without power and lack heat. We are opening up a fourth warming centre at Mayfield Recreation Centre.”

The four warming centres are:

Town Hall – 6311 Old Church Road in Caledon East, just west of Innis Lake Road (24/7 hour access)
Albion Bolton Community Centre, 150 Queen Street South, Bolton (open during regular programming hours; overnight needs will be accommodated at CCRW – see below)
Caledon Centre for Recreation and Wellness (CCRW), 14111 Regional Road 50 North, Bolton (24/7 hour access)
Mayfield Recreation Centre, 12087 Bramalea Road (24/7 hour access)
The warming centres are open until further notice.

Citizens are asked to please bring personal comfort items, medications, and their own phones or chargers to the warming centres. Citizens with accessibility needs are advised to go to the warming centres at Town Hall, CCRW or Mayfield Recreation Centre.

“I want to thank all of our staff and first responders who have been working hard to clear debris, keep our buildings open and restore service,” said Mayor Morrison. “And I want to thank citizens for their patience and understanding as we work to restore service.”

Other points of note:

Fire and Emergency Services has attended over 150 calls and visited seniors residences in our community to ensure the residents are safe.

  • Hi Patti

    I have been following your excellent coverage of the fallout from the storm. The Town obviously got hit very hard. It sounds as if nearly 2/3rds of Bolton is without hydro.

    Good luck with it all. I am thinking of you as well as others back home.

    We were very fortunate here with only one minor outage and one major tree limb coming down on the street. I am counting my blessings as I hear about all the challenges people are facing.

    Take Care and may Santa bring power for Christmas.

    Valerie
