Heat Notice Update #1

Heat Advisory Now Through 6am Thursday

Excessive Heat Watch Thursday Morning Through Sunday Evening

Dear Resident,

A prolonged period of heat and increasing humidity will continue to build this week and into this weekend. Heat Advisories are now in effect for today and Wednesday and the Excessive Heat Watch has been extended into Sunday. Although temperatures and heat index values on Wednesday will be a touch lower than today, the effects of the heat will get progressively worse as the week progresses and temperatures will continue to rise, with the highest temperatures of the period occurring on Friday. Although temperatures may not be as high over the weekend, surface dew points will rise, making it feel much hotter than it will be. Be prepared to find ways to keep yourself cool and hydrated and limit outdoor activities when possible. 

Young children and infants, pregnant women, as well as older adults and those with chronic medical conditions are at higher risk of heat related illness. Please take extra precautions and review the websites below to learn how to recognize heat related illnesses. 

Do not leave children or pets alone in a car for even a minute.  A vehicle heats up quickly and a child’s body temperature rises faster than an adult’s.   Animals are at risk for brain damage or heatstroke in just 15 minutes and leaving a pet in a car unattended is illegal in New Jersey. We remind you to check the back seat every time you leave the vehicle. If you see a child or pet left unattended in a vehicle, dial 911 immediately.  

Recycling Update – Due to the heat, recycling may be collected early in the day.   Please place items curbside the night before your scheduled collection date.

Please review the following websites for heat safety tips:

The Marlboro Police are available 24/7 and can be reached at 732-536-0100.  For emergencies always dial 911.   Please take a moment to check in on your neighbors, especially those that are older or with disabilities. We will update you as necessary. 

Stay safe,

Mayor Jon Hornik
