Excessive Heat Warning Issued for Central New Jersey

The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management has issued an excessive heat warning for Central New Jersey for today and tomorrow. Temperatures are expected to hover in the upper 90s, with heat indexes above 100 degrees.

Children, older adults, people with disabilities and pets are most at risk during excessive temperatures.  Mercer County is reminding residents that many cooling sites are open. Mercer County offers cooling sites, including all municipal senior centers, neighborhood community centers and the nine Mercer County Library System Branches.

Cooling centers in Princeton include the Princeton Senior Resource Center, the Princeton Public Library, Borough Hall and the Township Municipal Building.

For more information or to contact your local cooling site, please call the Mercer County Office on Aging at 877-222-3737. In addition to making cool sites and home cooling appliances available, the County also offers a “Warmline” via the Office on Aging.  During daytime hours, residents can call (609) 989-6661 or toll-free (877) 222-3737 for assistance in coping with the heat.  During non-business hours, residents are encouraged to call 911 if they experience heat-related problems.
