Local authorities in New York are asking residents not to pass by homeless people who may freeze on cold winter nights. They urge you to call 311 and report that a person is sleeping on the street. City service employees will come and take him to a warm place.

The New York Department of Emergency Management said that as soon as the temperature drops so much that it becomes dangerous, the city’s social services employees take to the streets.

“Workers walk all over the city. They are looking for homeless New Yorkers and all other people who, for some reason, find themselves on the street, and invite them to spend the night in a warm place. Sometimes we install heated buses at the end of metro stations or other places. We are opening other warming centers where people can go. We are also creating additional space in the wards of some city hospitals because we know that a lot of people go there to stay warm,” said Zach Iscol, Commissioner of the New York Department of Emergency Management.

According to him, the best thing city residents can do during cold weather is to promptly report homeless people sleeping in the cold. To do this, they just need to call the city 311 service and give the address where social workers should come.
