A Code Blue advisory is issued when frigid weather poses a danger to the homeless population.

The Cape May County Office of Emergency Management has extended a “Code Blue” advisory for all of Cape May County to March 9, allowing people to seek shelter in local warming centers during the cold weather.

Code Blue conditions are in effect when the temperature reaches 25 degrees or lower with clear skies or 32 degrees or lower with precipitation.

Please be aware that there may be people in your municipality who require temporary sheltering during this advisory period.

People seeking temporary shelter in a warming center should contact their local municipality. Additional resources are available by calling the County Homeless Hotline at 1-877-886-1325 or 1-609-886-1325.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact our office. Additional information regarding the Code Blue advisory can be found on the Cape May County website at
