Code Blue Alert Issued for December 18-20

The Atlantic County Office of Emergency Preparedness has issued a Code Blue Alert in accordance with New Jersey regulations beginning Sunday, December 18 through Tuesday, December 20.

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 32 degrees Fahrenheit or lower with or without 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 with a documented population of at least 10 “at risk individuals” 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

As warming centers are activated, they will be included on a statewide list available at nj211.org.
