A Code Blue has been called by Union County Department of Human Services, due to predicted weather conditions. Emergency shelters are expected to extend capacity to highest possible levels tonight, utilizing the additional cots provided by UCDHS. The individuals/families sheltered during a Code Blue must be screened and referred by the UC Division of Social Services (UCDSS). After hours (after 4:00pm) and when County offices are closed, all after hour referrals should be directed to the Plainfield Area YMCA at (908) 756-6061. The Plainfield Area YMCA will accept walk-ins when possible during a Code Blue.

FOR EMERGENCY SHELTERS: PLEASE EMAIL CODEBLUE@UCNJ.ORG AND INDICATE THE NUMBER OF BEDS YOU HAVE AVAILABLE WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS NOTIFICATION AND THEN RESPOND AGAIN AT 3:30PM OR WHEN NO BEDS ARE AVAILABLE. INCLUDE YOUR AGENCY NAME, CONTACT, AND PHONE NUMBER SO REFERRALS CAN BE MADE FOR DAY PLACEMENTS.

Should you have questions on the Code Blue procedure, please contact Maureen Glenn at (908) 527-4838 or via e-mail at codeblue@ucnj.org.
