A Code Blue is triggered when temperatures drop to 32 degrees with precipitation, or 25 degrees with no precipitation. Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties have issued Code Blue warnings.

“It is a disaster waiting to happen when vulnerable individuals, especially the homeless, are exposed to brutal weather conditions,” said Testa (R-1). “When the temperature drops below freezing, we want to ensure everyone has a warm, safe place to escape the cold and lay their heads at night. We don’t want people risking their lives, and urge them to take precautions and seek help when necessary.”

If you know of someone who has issues with their heat or needs a place to stay warm during this severe cold, please call 2-1-1 to help them find a warming center.”

Testa said New Jersey residents in need of assistance can dial 2-1-1 to find emergency shelter in their community, and any resident facing a life-threatening emergency should call 9-1-1.
