Freehold Township Shelter and Volunteer Information

Arrangements made for shelter space outside of township.

Shelter space is available for any Freehold Township resident without heat, according to alert sent out by the municipality’s Office of Emergency (OEM) management on Saturday.

The alert sent out by Freehold Township OEM is as follows:

Any Freehold Township resident who is without heat, and is unable to spend the night with family or friends, may contact OEM at 732-252-1950 for information. Through a cooperative effort, limited shelter space is available out of town.

Anyone seeking shelter space must be prepared to provide their own bedding and should bring their own clothing, toiletries, medication and personal items.

We also are in need of volunteers to help staff the shelter. Shifts will cover a 24-hour period and each shift will be approximately 8 hours long. Training will be provided. Those interested in volunteering should also call 732-252-1950.

I urge everyone reading this who still has no power at Freehold Township to file a complaint with the Board of Public Utilities. Problems that I have experienced include: 1) No updates from JCP&L 2) No one answering telephone at JCP&L 3) Excessive wait time for power restoration. 4) Inadequate preparation for storm. They should have powered down the substations during the storm so they can be restarted after the storm without delay. File complaint at http://www.nj.gov/bpu/assistance/complaints/inquiry.html Contact Congressman Smith at http://chrissmith.house.gov/contact/zipauth.htm
