Hudson County Winter Emergency Plan Protocols
What is a Code Blue Alert?

For more information on DPW's snow removal efforts please visit their website hereAny amendments to the current plan will be shared accordingly.

During inclement weather please keep in mind the following precautions:

● Staying informed is essential, and potentially lifesaving for you and your family.  To sign up for SwiftReach 911 emergency alerts click here.

● Residents are urged to check on elderly relatives and neighbors. 

● Report heat and other related complaints to the JC Resident Response Center at (201) 547-4900. 

● Local outreach teams are engaging & registering individuals for existing shelters & the Hudson County warming center. If you encounter a homeless family, please direct them to contact the Hudson County Homeless Hotline: 1-800-624-0287.

● Residents are also urged to keep pets indoors and secure outside furniture and articles due to impending high wind conditions.

● Residents are reminded to NOT PARK within 25 feet of an intersection and to not double park.  Doing so only hampers the efforts of crews plowing and salting streets. All vehicles parked within 25 feet of an intersection may be ticketed or towed. If possible, residents are asked to not park on main thoroughfares, so that DPW can remove snow from curb-to-curb.  During inclement weather, there is no parking on emergency routes.

● Following the storm, residents are reminded to NOT shovel snow into the street and should clear sidewalks in front of their property of snow and ice in accordance with the municipal ordinance.  Please follow these snow removal regulations.

● For additional updates, please visit the Official City of Jersey City Facebook page or on Twitter @JC_GOV.
