Heat Advisory☀️ It’s going to be hot out there today! When humidities and temperatures are high we may also see a few thunderstorms pop up in the afternoon and evening (between 3PM and 8 PM). Keep a check of the weather especially if you have outdoor activities planned. • There is a Heat Advisory posted until 8 PM today. Mid-to late afternoon hours are the times for highest heat index potential (over 100). • There is an Air Quality Alert posted today for Mercer and Burlington Counties. Combined with the Heat Advisory, that creates dangerous conditions for people at risk (elderly, children, heart/lung issues, etc.) and people who work outdoors. WHAT TO DO NOW: Prepare • Find places in your community where you can go to get cool. • Keep your home cool by doing the following: o Cover windows with drapes or shades. o Weather-strip doors and windows. o Use window reflectors, such as aluminum foil-covered cardboard, to reflect heat back outside. o Add insulation to keep the heat out. o Use attic fans to clear hot air. o Install window air conditioners and insulate around them. • Learn to recognize the signs of heat-related illness. WHAT TO DO DURING: Be Safe • NEVER leave a child, adult, or animal alone inside a vehicle on a warm day. • Find places with air conditioning. Libraries, shopping malls, and community centers can provide a cool place to take a break from the heat. • If you’re outside, find shade. Wear a hat wide enough to protect your face. • Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing. • Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated. If you or someone you care for is on a special diet, ask a doctor how best to accommodate it. • Do not use electric fans when the temperature outside is more than 95 degrees, as this could increase the risk of heat-related illness. Fans create air flow and a false sense of comfort, but do not reduce body temperature. • Avoid high-energy activities. • Check yourself, family members, and neighbors for signs of heat-related illness. • Pets need to stay hydrated too! Be sure to keep them cool. Need a cooling center? Call NJ 2-1-1 #ReadyNJ #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #emergencymanagement #staycool #beattheheat

Regrann from @newjerseystatepolice - There is still time to run with Veronica! Join Jersey Troopers, St. Catharine School, and Trinity Hall High School for: Run with Veronica Veronica Szenzenstein is the 15-year-old daughter of Major Glen Szenzenstein, Deputy Branch Commander of our Field Operations Section. This past February, Veronica was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a cancer that affects the immune system, which protects the body against infections. This type of cancer is deadly and can spread, as in Veronica'...s case, but it is beatable. It's difficult to anticipate how anyone will react to being diagnosed with cancer, especially a young adult, but adversity is surely a true test of character. Strength, courage, and compassion are just a few words used to describe Veronica and why she's inspired so many of us here in the State Police. As Veronica has been courageously battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma, she wasn't just worried about herself, she was worried about others. So she volunteered to take part in a number of research studies to help find less caustic treatments and to support an event in her honor to raise awareness and funding for Hodgkin's Lymphoma research through "Run with Veronica." "Run with Veronica" is a 5k run or 1-mile fun run/walk event with all of the proceeds going to research at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), so that one day no other child will have to endure this terrible disease. Join Veronica, Jersey Troopers, friends, and family on Saturday, June 16th at Saint Catharine School, 301 2nd Avenue, Spring Lake, N.J. at 8:30 a.m. to help raise money and awareness! As a child, Veronica may have looked up to all the Troopers like her dad, but today, we're all looking up to her! Let's give Veronica a hand! Anyone interested can register at the event! #ReadyNJ #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #lawenforcement #bluefamily #njspfamily #blueandgold #jerseyshore

FEMA Approves Governor Murphy’s Request for Major Disaster Declaration Following March Nor’Easter TRENTON - Governor Phil Murphy’s request for a Major Disaster Declaration for the March 6 to March 7, 2018 winter storm was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Declaration helps alleviate the financial burden created by the storm by making millions in local disaster response expenditures in Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic and Somerset counties eligible for federal reimbursement. The Declaration also provides funding for statewide hazard mitigation projects to help protect against future disasters. “Alleviating the suffering and damage which resulted from the dangerous weather conditions during the March nor’easter is a crucial step towards recovery,” said Governor Phil Murphy. "I thank the federal government for approving this request to ensure New Jersey receives the assistance it needs to fully recover from the storm.” “Although summer is less than two weeks away, there are parts of our State still recovering from the disastrous effects of the winter storm from three months ago,” said Colonel Patrick Callahan of the New Jersey State Police. “The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management will continue to coordinate the recovery effort with our local, county and federal partners in the affected counties.” Governor Murphy formally requested a Major Disaster Declaration as a result of the severe winter storm that struck New Jersey from March 6, 2018 to March 7, 2018, to assist the counties of Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic and Somerset. The storm dropped 27 inches of snow throughout the state, causing nearly $20 million in damages and resulting in over 342,000 power outages.

Flash Flood Warnings Tonight! Please tune in to your local weather! Here are the latest warnings from NWS Mount Holly: Flash Flood Warning including Toms River NJ, Browns Mills NJ, Beachwood NJ until 6:45 AM. 12:40 pm: Reports of flooding in the Philadelphia metro area. ***Turn Around, Don't Drown*** A mere six inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. And it only takes 12 to 18 inches of flowing water to carry away most vehicles including large SUVs. If you come to an area that is covered with water, you will likely not know the depth of the water or the condition of the ground under the water. This is especially true at night, when your vision is more limited. Play it smart, play it safe. Whether driving, biking or walking, any time you come to a flooded road, follow this simple advice: Turn Around, Don't Drown! Here are a few more tips to keep you safe during flooding: • Always plan ahead and know the risks before flooding happens. Monitor NOAA’s All-Hazards Radio, or your favorite news source for vital weather related information before, during and even after a disaster. • If flooding is expected or is occurring, get to higher ground FAST! Leave typical flood areas such as ditches, ravines, dips or low spots, and canyons. • Avoid areas already flooded, especially if the water is flowing fast. Do not attempt to cross flowing streams. Turn Around Don't Drown. • NEVER drive through flooded roadways. Road beds may be washed out under flood waters. Turn Around Don't Drown. • Do not camp or park your vehicle along streams and washes, particularly during threatening conditions. • Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flood dangers. • Never cross any barriers that are put in place by local emergency officials. Not only is this dangerous, but many states and communities levy steep fines for people that ignore barricades or other road closure indications. • Play it safe, Turn Around, Don't Drown. #ReadyNJ #NJSP #flood #flooding #floodsafety #TurnAroundDontDrown #emergencymanagement #Drivesafe #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #getready #buildakit #makeaplan #itonlytakesone #Preparedness

⚠️Dense Fog Advisory⚠️ A Dense Fog Advisory is now in effect for the New Jersey coast. Visibilities will be reduced to 1/4 mile or less and will result in dangerous driving conditions. Dense fog may continue to spread west tonight. If you MUST drive in foggy conditions, keep the following safety tips in mind: • Slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination. • Make your vehicle visible to others both ahead of you and behind you by using your low-beam headlights since this means your taillights will also be on. Use fog lights if you have them. • Never use your high-beam lights. Using high beam lights causes glare, making it more difficult for you to see what’s ahead of you on the road. • Leave plenty of distance between you and the vehicle in front of you to account for sudden stops or changes in the traffic pattern. • To ensure you are staying in the proper lane, follow the lines on the road with your eyes. • In extremely dense fog where visibility is near zero, the best course of action is to first turn on your hazard lights, then simply pull into a safe location such as a parking lot of a local business and stop. • If there is no parking lot or driveway to pull into, pull your vehicle off to the side of the road as far as possible. Once you come to a stop, turn off all lights except your hazard flashing lights, set the emergency brake, and take your foot off of the brake pedal to be sure the tail lights are not illuminated so that other drivers don't mistakenly run into you.

Regrann from @newjerseystatepolice - Join Jersey Troopers, St. Catharine School, and Trinity Hall High School for: Run with Veronica Veronica Szenzenstein is the 15-year-old daughter of Major Glen Szenzenstein, Deputy Branch Commander of our Field Operations Section. This past February, Veronica was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a cancer that affects the immune system, which protects the body against infections. This type of cancer is deadly and can spread, as in Veronica's case, but it is beatable. It's difficult to anticipate how anyone will react to being diagnosed with cancer, especially a young adult, but adversity is surely a true test of character. Strength, courage, and compassion are just a few words used to describe Veronica and why she's inspired so many of us here in the State Police. As Veronica has been courageously battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma, she wasn't just worried about herself, she was worried about others. So she volunteered to take part in a number of research studies to help find less caustic treatments and to support an event in her honor to raise awareness and funding for Hodgkin's Lymphoma research through "Run with Veronica." "Run with Veronica" is a 5k run or 1-mile fun run/walk event with all of the proceeds going to research at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), so that one day no other child will have to endure this terrible disease. Join Veronica, Jersey Troopers, friends, and family on Saturday, June 16th at Saint Catharine School, 301 2nd Avenue, Spring Lake, N.J. at 8:30 a.m. to help raise money and awareness! As a child, Veronica may have looked up to all the Troopers like her dad, but today, we're all looking up to her! Let's give Veronica a hand! Anyone interested should go to raceforum.com/VERONICA. Please like and share this post to help spread the word! #njsp - #regrann #ReadyNJ #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #njcops #lawenforcement #thinblueline #bluefamily #njspfamily #njtrooper #njstatetrooper #family

Trooper Brian McNally was a member of the 154th State Police Class, which graduated August 29th, 2014. He was assigned to Washington Station. Prior to becoming a member of the New Jersey State Police, Trooper McNally graduated from the Citadel Military Academy and was a Captain in the United States Marine Corps Reserves. “Tammy and I are deeply saddened by the death of Trooper Brian McNally, who was killed in an off duty car crash yesterday evening while returning from weekend military service in Pennsylvania,” said Governor Phil Murphy. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the McNally family and the New Jersey State Police at this difficult time.” “My heart goes out to the family of Trooper McNally and to the Troopers and Marines who served with him,” said Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal. “He lived his life in service to New Jersey, to his country, and to the safety and security of all of us. It is with great sadness and gratitude that we honor his memory.” "The men and women of the State Police are devastated by the tragic loss of Trooper McNally,” said Colonel Patrick Callahan, Acting Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police. “Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with his family. Brian's life was a testament to his dedication to service of both state and country." The crash is being investigated by the Pennsylvania State Police.

New Jersey in Hawaii! Our very own Howie Butt has come out of retirement (for the second time if anyone is counting) to assist the people of Hawaii in coordinating missions through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC). EMAC is the national state-to-state mutual aid system. Agencies across states are able to work together to provide effective aid after a disaster. The Kīlauea volcano is the most active volcano on Hawaii's Big Island. In early May this volcano, which helped create the islands, erupted adding more than 443 acres of new land to the island ever since. Lava fountains and flows, displacing many residents, have destroyed neighborhoods. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by this disaster. #ReadyNJ #KilaueaVolcano #Hawaii #EMAC #KilaueaEruption #emergencymanagement #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #getready #buildakit #makeaplan #itonlytakesone Follow us!

How Prepared Are You? Remember: If it has been raining hard for several hours, or steadily raining for several days, be alert to the possibility of a flood, especially if you live in a low lying or flood prone area. Basic Flood Safety Tips - Turn Around, Don’t Drown! - Avoid walking, biking or driving through flood waters. - Do not drive over bridges that are over fast-moving floodwaters. Floodwaters can scour foundation material from around the footings and make the bridge unstable. - Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away. - If there is a chance of flash flooding, move immediately to higher ground. - If floodwaters rise around your car but the water is not moving, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Do not leave the car and enter moving water. - Avoid camping or parking along streams, rivers, and creeks during heavy rainfall. These areas can flood quickly and with little warning.

What to do During a Power Outage Utility crews have been working throughout the night and will continue to work until power is restored to all those affected by last night’s storms. Here are a few safety tips about what to do during a power outage: Medical, mobility, communication or other needs: • Call 9-1-1 if you are dependent on equipment that requires electricity and have an urgent need. • Monitor the amount of time the electricity is out to determine whether to move medications requiring refrigeration into an alternate temperature controlled container. All members of the public: • Notify your utility company of the outage and learn about area repair schedules. Visit ready.nj.gov/plan-prepare/public-utilities.shtml for public utilities contact information. • Listen to your battery-powered radio or television in your emergency kit and monitor social media for updated information, and for any directions from public safety officials. • Avoid candles because of the extreme risk of fire. Use only battery powered lights, such as flashlights, for emergency lighting. • To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning only use generators in open areas away from windows and NEVER inside your home Keep your refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible to avoid food spoilage. • Avoid elevators. • Turn off or unplug lights and appliances to prevent a circuit overload when the power returns. Leave one light on to let you know when power has been restored. • Check on neighbors, especially the ill, those with electric-dependent medical needs and the elderly. Always be prepared! Visit ready.nj.gov today to find out how you can prepare your family for emergencies! #ReadyNJ #PowerOutage #SafetyFirst #Thunderstorms #SpringSafety #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #getready #buildakit #makeaplan #itonlytakesone #Preparedness #emergencymanagement Follow us!

⚠️STEER CLEAR OF DOWNED POWER LINES⚠️ Storms are still moving through the area causing damage to trees and power lines. Utility crews have been working to restore power. Use caution in areas where power lines are still down! Never assume that a downed power line is not energized, as it still could be “live.” Prevent a tragedy with these safety tips: • Never assume that a downed power line is not energized, as it still could be “live.” • Never go near or touch an electrical wire. Never go near or touch anything or anyone that has come in contact with an electrical wire. • Stay at least 300 feet away from all downed wires--and keep others from going near them as well. Call your utility company or 9-1-1 immediately. •Any wire on the ground or hanging from a pole must be considered live. Telephone and cable TV wires may be entangled with electric wires and must also be treated as live. •Be especially careful when driving or parking a vehicle near downed wires. If downed wires are in the street, near the curb, or on the sidewalk, use extreme caution. Never drive over downed power lines. Even if not energized, they can become entangled in your vehicle. •Obey traffic barriers! They are there for your safety!!!
