Andrzejczak Introduces Bill to Establish “Code Blue Program” for At-Risk Residents In Need of Shelter During Weather Emergencies(TRENTON) - Assembly Democrat Bob Andrzejczak (D-Cape May, Atlantic, Cumberland) has introduced legislation to provide New Jersey's homeless and at-risk residents safe haven during severe weather occurrences such as extreme cold, heat or sustained precipitation and wind.
"Freezing and record-breaking heat temperatures can cause life threatening conditions for residents without sufficient shelter," said Andrzejczak. "A code blue program is essential to helping many residents to find shelter when extreme weather hits. When the resources are available, we should use them to protect those who are having a hard time in severe weather."
