GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, NJ (January 20, 2019)--Gloucester Township Police Department issued the following consumer tips for dealing with winter weather.
Rain will come to an end by this evening as a strong cold front moves through with strong NW winds and rapidly falling temperatures as arctic air rapidly moves in. This will lead to quick refreezing of wet and slushy surfaces causing very ice conditions.
Remember, if it’s too cold for you, it’s probably too cold for your pet, so keep your animals inside. If left outdoors, pets can freeze, become disoriented, lost, stolen, injured or killed. In addition, don’t leave pets alone in a car during cold weather, as cars can act as refrigerators that hold in the cold and cause animals to freeze to death. Try to stay off the roadways if possible during severe ice conditions.
Stay in the know during severe weather storms. Severe storms can cause power outages. It is important to know who to call.
During extreme cold conditions when temperatures drop below freezing we urge residents to shelter from the elements. It is also very important for elderly residents and animals to stay indoors. County Offices of Emergency Management together with county government will communicate Code Blue Alerts and the opening of Warming Centers through local media and social media outlets. Code Blue assistance Hotline 1-800-331-7272 open 24 hours a day, 7days a week.
