COLORADO — As Colorado prepares for cold weather hitting the state, several warming shelters have been set up across Colorado Springs and in Pueblo.

"A lot of the work we have to prepare for these frigid temperatures happens year-round," says Chief Development Officer at Springs Rescue Mission Travis Williams.

"We are in emergency services protocol, and that really means we're going to be doing everything we can to make sure people stay alive," he continued.
