North Texas Warming Center Information

We recognize many of our employees in the North Texas region are currently experiencing power outages due to the severe weather. Below please find a consolidated list of area warming centers that we will continue to update as more information is provided by local resources.

Also, we have established a warming center at our Grand Prairie site for employees and their family members. If employees choose to come in, they are required to be socially distanced and wear masks, per CDC and company COVID guidance. Pets are not allowed. Employees who choose to go to the Grand Prairie facility should use the main entrance in the Thayer Building.  

Please note, only travel to any of the facilities listed if you feel safe driving on the roads. Also watch your local weather forecast as additional snowfall/icy conditions are expected this evening in the region. Please check this link prior to traveling to any of the sites listed below to ensure they are still active.
