Silver Reef opened to power outage victims seeking temporary refuge

Lummi Communications Department issued the following invitation to the general public this evening,

According to Lummi Communications officials, the Center will be open until midnight tonight and then will reopen at 8am again tomorrow. This action comes as a result of a Lummi Indian Business Council declaration of an extreme weather emergency earlier this week.

For Immediate Release – February 5, 2019

Lummi Nation declares extreme weather emergency

At the Lummi Indian Business Countil meeting on February 5, 2019, members of the LIBC passed a motion to direct the Chairman to declare an extreme weather emergency on the reservation.

With the current harsh weather conditions, which are predicted in the forecast to continue throughout the week and weekend, LIBC is making an effort to ensure that all people and families are safe.

Many of our people on the Lummi reservation have been experiencing power outages, which can be incredibly harmful to the wellbeing of our elders, children and people in need of medical assistance. All people are entitled to the basic human rights of a roof over their head, food and water. As Lummi People, we have a sacred responsibility to take care of one another; a teaching that has been passed down to us from our elders and ancestors. We will do all that we can to ensure our people are taken care of during these harsh weather conditions.

The Lummi Communications Department will be sending out notifications by text and Facebook to disseminate information about services for those that do not have a place to go during these weather conditions and for those that might be impacted by another power outage.
