Contingency plan for cold activated

06, February 2018

On February 5, due to the significant drop in temperatures, was activated the contingency plan for homeless people with the installation of the operational center at the Manuel Castelbranco Municipal Pavilion, at Graça. Fernando Medina and the City Councilor for Social Rights, Ricardo Robles, visited the space with the President of the Republic.

The plan was activated at 7 p.m. and shortly after the street teams began to arrive with homeless people who, after registration, could take a shower, get clean and warm clothes, and eat a hot meal. From there, they would be directed, if it was their wish, to several reception centers around the city. The Lisboa Subway will keep open the Rossio, Saldanha, Oriente and Intendente stations.
