Arctic Blast Weather Preparations by the City OEM


The City of Memphis Office of Emergency Management is in gear for arctic winter weather conditions that will linger in Memphis over the next several days. The City of Memphis has implemented its cold weather plan beginning with Warming Centers – Warming Centers are places where residents dealing with extended times of low temperatures, below 20° F, may escape the extreme conditions. Primary locations for warming centers are usually malls, shopping centers, libraries, and community centers that are opened during normal business hours.


Due to the extreme temperatures in the evening hours, the Orange Mound Community Center, located at 2572 Park Avenue, will remain open from 7 pm-7 am beginning   Wednesday January 7, 2014 for those seeking warmth after normal business hours.


Those seeking overnight accommodations are encouraged to seek assistance from our partners at The Union Mission located at 383 Poplar Ave. or The Salvation Army located at 696 Jackson Ave. MATA will provide transportation to the Warming Center and locations listed above. You can reach MATA at 901-722-7129.


Our staff will continue to monitor the situation for any changes in conditions.

Relaxed Deferred Payment To Help With Higher Bills

New policy runs from January 27 to February 28.


(January 24 2014)—Residential customers of Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division will likely have higher bills this winter because of colder temperatures and increased consumption. To help, MLGW is relaxing deferred payment plan (DEFB) requirements, starting Monday, January 27, until February 28.


Starting Monday, the relaxed rules lower the requirement for a deferred payment plan to bills that are $250 or more, which is down from $500 or more. Customers will be allowed to pay 25 percent of the money owed or $250, whichever is less. These payments can be made by cashier’s check, money order or in cash.


If the resulting DEFB payment exceeds $500 a month, the DEFB can be set up over a longer period but not to exceed nine months, with approval, which is increase from the limit of five months under the current policy.


“Our goal is to be as flexible as possible to help customers when they need it most,” said Jerry R. Collins Jr., MLGW President and CEO.

The average residential utility bill increased about 22 percent in December 2013-January 2014 compared to the same period a year ago partly because of colder than normal temperatures. Still, MLGW total winter residential bills rank among the lowest in the nation.


To help customers cope with the colder temperatures, here are some tips:


  • Set your thermostat at 68° or lower when you’re home. Every degree below 68° can save four percent on your heating bills.
  • Wear layered clothing and thick socks to keep warm, then set your thermostat even lower.
  • At bedtime, lower your thermostat and add extra blankets.
  • Lower or turn off thermostat when leaving your home for four hours or more.
  • Adjust your water heater temperature to 120° or “warm.” It still provides hot water and avoids scalding. You can lower it when not in use, too.

MEMPHIS – Influenza vaccine is now available at no cost at all of the Shelby County Health Department (SCHD) clinics while supplies last.

“Influenza right now is disproportionately affecting young adults, ages 20 to 40, with no underlying conditions, which is unlike the groups usually most vulnerable,” said Helen Morrow, M.D., health officer for SCHD.

Annual vaccination against influenza is recommended for everyone six months and older, including school-aged children, who want to reduce the risk of becoming ill or transmitting it to others. The vaccine is especially recommended for the following persons who are at increased risk for severe complications associated with influenza:

  • Pregnant women
  • People 50 years of age and older
  • People of any age with chronic medical conditions, including asthma and other lung diseases, heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes
  • People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities
  • People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from influenza, including:

ØHealth care workers

ØHousehold contact of persons at high risk for complications from influenza

ØHousehold contacts and caregivers of children less than six months of age

Some tips to help protect against the spread of influenza include:

  • Clean:  Properly wash hands frequently with warm, soapy water; disinfect surfaces.
  • Cover:  Cover cough and sneeze into a disposable tissue or arm.
  • Contain:  Stay home from school/work when sick to keep germs from spreading.

If an individual experiences flu-like symptoms, they should contact their health care provider.  Symptoms include: fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater; headache, fatigue, cough, muscle aches, and sore throat.

No appointment is necessary. Hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.Monday through Friday unless otherwise specified below.
