The Montgomery County Commissioners have declared an extension of their earlier Code Blue Cold Weather Emergency for the county beginning Friday, Jan. 24 at 12 p.m. through Friday, Jan. 31 at 12 p.m., after a review of weather forecasts from the National Weather Service, and a recommendation from the Montgomery County Department of Public Safety, according to a media release.
The county announces a Code Blue Cold Weather Declaration
when cold weather conditions might threaten the life and health of those
individuals who do not have shelter from the elements. The Code Blue is
announced when the combined temperature of the air and wind chill are thought
to be 20ºF or lower in the near future.
