Camden County Issues 'Code Blue' Weather Advisory

Posted: Updated:

Officials in Camden County are reminding residents to prepare for the cold weather, as temperatures are expected to dip into the 30s to close out the week.

The county on Thursday issued a "Code Blue" weather advisory as the cold weather moves in overnight.

"When the Camden County Health Officer declares a severe weather advisory, municipalities with homeless populations, situational homeless or transient populations are expected to activate their Code Blue response plan to accommodate their immediate needs," Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Camden County Health Department said in a statement.

The county says both the health department and the office of emergency management have worked with each municipality to make sure resources are available to help those in need.

"During these weather emergencies, we encourage everyone to check on elderly or handicapped relatives and neighbors that live alone," Rodriguez said. "It's important that the most vulnerable among us are not left without heat or electricity."

As a high wind warning remains in effect for the count, residents can report issues on county roads by calling the Department of Public Works at 856-566-2980.
