‘Code Blue’ Extended with Below-Freezing Temperatures

CODE BLUE DECLARATION EXTENDED – A “Code Blue” declaration, issued earlier this week by Montgomery County government because winter conditions posed a threat of serious harm or death to individuals without shelter, has been extended until Sunday (Feb. 21, 2021) at 11 a.m., the Lower Pottsgrove Police Department broadcast from its CrimeWatch website. The extension was based on forecast information received from the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly NJ. It predicted that “the temperature or wind chill is expected to be at or below 20 degrees Fahrenheit.” County residents who need emergency shelter during a “Code Blue” can call the Your Way Home Call Center at 2-1-1 or text their zip code to 898-211.
