Heat Advisory Notice #1

July 19, 2022

Dear Resident,

The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for our area Wednesday with an extended period of heat through at least Sunday. Temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 90s each day with the highest heat indices expected to occur on Wednesday and Thursday.  The conditions will be warm and muggy with heat indices exceeding 100 degrees. 

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 website 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 will be picked up early for zones 2, 3 and 4.  Please place items curbside the night before your scheduled collection date.

Please review the following websites for heat safety tips:

At this time, the Marlboro Recreation Family Movie Night, Encanto, scheduled for Thursday at the Rec Amphitheater and the Sunday Marlboro Farmers Market will be held as planned. Updates, if needed, will be posted to the Township website and social media.   

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
