Code Blue Alert Issued for December 8-10

In accordance with recent New Jersey regulations enacted in May 2017, Atlantic County is advising the public of a Code Blue Alert effective Friday, December 8 at 6 PM through Sunday, December 10.

A Code Blue Alert is required to be issued within 24 to 48 hours of weather conditions that may meet the following criteria based upon National Weather Service forecasts:

Temperatures will reach 25 degrees Fahrenheit or lower without precipitation or 32 degrees Fahrenheit or lower with precipitation; or wind-chill temperatures of 0 degrees or less for a period of two or more hours.

The Code Blue Alert is intended to assist municipalities in protecting citizens who may be living outdoors or in poorly insulated settings and are at risk for weather-related exposure and possible death.

Any resident who experiences a life-threatening emergency should call 9-1-1. Non-life threatening emergencies may be reported to your local municipal office of emergency management. Contact information for all offices is available online at: www.readyatlantic.org/mainpages/localems.asp
