Mayor John E. McCormac Urges Residents to Check on Neighbors & Seniors

 

WOODBRIDGE – Mayor John E. McCormac today announced that the Department of Health & Human Services, the Multi-Service Division on Aging, and the Office of Emergency Management have established “cooling centers” at various Township facilities, including the Woodbridge Community Center (WCC), the Health Center, the Evergreen Senior Center, Main Library and Branch Libraries, and at municipal buildings – locations where residents can get air-conditioned relief from the predicted three-day heat wave.  Residents without air conditioning and who cannot travel should contact the Multi-Service Division on Aging “Beat the Heat” program at 732-855-0600 x5023 for assistance. 

 

“The Township has opened cooling centers at the Woodbridge Community Center (WCC) and at other municipal locations and senior centers convenient to residents who do not have air conditioning and who need to obtain relief from the extremely hot temperatures,” Mayor McCormac said.  “Senior and disabled residents, along with individuals with respiratory problems and those with medical conditions, should take precautions and obtain relief from the extremely hot conditions expected over the next several days.”

 

Woodbridge Township Cooling Centers are open at the following locations.  Contact the Center for hours of operation:

·         Woodbridge Community Center (WCC), 600 Main Street, Woodbridge: (732-596-4170)

·         Evergreen Senior Center, 400 Inman Avenue, Colonia: (732-726-6262)

·         Woodbridge Main Library, 1 George Frederick Plaza: (732-634-4450)

·         Fords Branch Library, 211 Ford Avenue: (732-726-7071)

·         Henry Inman Branch Library (Colonia), 607 Inman Avenue: (732-726-7072)

·         Iselin Branch Library, 1081 Green Street, Iselin: (732-726-7073)

·         Woodbridge Health Center, 2 George Frederick Plaza:  (732-855-0600 x5026)

·         Woodbridge Town Hall, One Main Street: (732-634-4500)

 

Mayor McCormac suggested that residents look out for neighbors, senior residents and family members during periods of extreme heat.  “If you know someone who may be at risk for heat stress, take a few minutes to check on them periodically throughout the day and night.  You may be saving a life,” Mayor McCormac said.

 

The Multi-Service Division on Aging sponsors the “Beat the Heat” fan donation program.  Each summer the Multi-Service Division on Aging reaches out to community associations, the business community, and residents seeking donations of new fans to assist senior residents or low income families without air conditioning or fans.  To be eligible to receive a free fan from the “Beat the Heat” program, applicants must be a resident of Woodbridge Township, not have any cooling device or, due to illness and/or disability, cannot leave the residence to go to a cooling center, and complete a request/eligibility form.  To apply for the “Beat the Heat” Program, or to donate a fan, contact the Multi-Service Division on Aging, Health Center, 2 George Frederick Plaza at 732-855-0600 x5023 (Mon.-Fri. from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.)

 

Mayor McCormac offered the following “heat alert” suggestions:

  • Remain indoors, in a properly ventilated location, as much as possible.
  • If you must go out, do so early or late and wear sunscreen and clothing to protect exposed skin.
  • Keep a supply of drinking water and prepared foods and avoid use of stoves or ovens.
  • Avoid outdoor activities; and
  • Be a good neighbor and check on family and friends.
