New Jersey Sends Additional Personnel to Areas Affected by Hurricane Florence Sixteen additional members of New Jersey Task Force One (NJ-TF1) were deployed late last night at the request of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). New Jersey is also sending 6 rescue boats and 5 vehicles to assist the rescue efforts. They are currently enroute to a staging area in Morganton, North Carolina. On Monday, September 10, our 85-member NJ-TF1 team departed New Jersey and is currently staging in Kinston, North Carolina. Although downgraded to a Tropical Depression, Florence continues to wreak havoc on both North and South Carolina with flash floods and swollen rivers not expected to crest until Tuesday. The team remains poised and ready for their next mission. An additional NJ-TF1 team member has been deployed to Columbia, South Carolina to provide assistance to rescue personnel in the area. He will work as part of the FEMA Incident Support Team that manages the search and rescue teams operating in the affected locations. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the citizens and first responders in North and South Carolina. #ReadyNJ #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #NJTF1 #Florence #hurricaneflorence #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #emergencymanagement #searchandrescue #waterrescue #taskforce #USAR #urbansearch #northcarolina #Florence Follow us for updates!

Regrann from @newjerseystatepolice - September 11, 2001 The New Jersey State Police remembers all those we lost 17 years ago today and those who have fallen as result of the rescue efforts like our very own Lt. William Fearon. Lt. Bill Fearon died on December 28, 2016 as a result of an illness sustained in the line of duty from his response to the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. God bless those who made the ultimate sacrifice and the friends and families of all of the victims. We will never forget. #September11 #GoneButNotForgotten #Heroes - #regrann #ReadyNJ #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #emergencymanagement #njtf1 #neverforget

National Preparedness Month National Preparedness Month (NPM), recognized each September, provides an opportunity to remind us that we all must prepare ourselves and our families now and throughout the year. This NPM will focus on planning, with an overarching theme: Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How. Take time to learn lifesaving skills − such as CPR and first aid, check your insurance policies and coverage for the hazards you may face, such as flood, earthquakes, and tornados. Make sure to consider the costs associated with disasters and save for an emergency. Also, know how to take practical safety steps like shutting off water and gas. The devastating hurricanes and wildfires of 2017 reminded the nation of the importance of preparing for disasters. Often, we will be the first ones in our communities to take action after a disaster strikes and before first responders arrive, so it is important to prepare in advance to help yourself and your community.

Flood Safety – After The Flood Many areas of the state experienced significant flooding over the past few days. Know how to stay safe after a flood: • Listen to local authorities for information and instructions. • Return home only when authorities say it is safe. • Avoid driving, except in emergencies. NEVER drive through flooded areas and ALWAYS obey traffic barriers. • Snakes and other animals may be in your house. Wear heavy gloves and boots during clean up. • Be aware of the risk of electrocution. Do not touch electrical equipment if it is wet or if you are standing in water. If it is safe to do so, turn off the electricity to prevent electric shock. • Avoid wading in floodwater, which can contain dangerous debris and be contaminated. Underground or downed power lines can also electrically charge the water. • Use a generator or other gasoline-powered machinery ONLY outdoors and away from windows.

Weather Update Rain will continue through Tuesday. A Flood Warning is posted for the Passaic River at Pine Brook. The river is forecast to crest Tuesday. A Flash Flood Warning is posted for portions of Monmouth, Ocean, and Burlington Counties until 12:45 PM. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for most counties through this evening. Impacts to New Jersey: Heavy rain today brings the potential for localized flooding in urban areas, roadways, locations with poor drainage, creeks and streams, and for the Passaic River near Pine Brook. Minor coastal flooding may occur with high tides tonight. Monitor local forecasts today for additional flood watches and warnings in your area, and for times of high tide for coastal locations. Flooding causes more deaths in the United States than any other thunderstorm-related hazard. Remember: Just six inches of fast-moving floodwater can knock you off your feet. Two feet of water can sweep an SUV off the road. #ReadyNJ #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #emergencymanagement #flooding #FloodSafety #TurnAroundDontDrown Visit http://www.ready.nj.gov/plan-prepare/floods.shtml for more info!
Basic Flood Safety Tips More rain is in the forecast which unfortunately means not only the possibility of flooding in those areas prone to flooding but additional areas as well. Flooding causes more deaths in the United States than any other thunderstorm-related hazard. Remember: Just six inches of fast-moving floodwater can knock you off your feet. Two feet of water can sweep an SUV off the road. Tips to Survive During a Flood: • Depending on where you are, and the impact and the warning time of flooding, go to the safe location that you previously identified. • If told to evacuate, do so immediately. Never drive around barricades. Local responders use them to safely direct traffic out of flooded areas. • Listen to EAS, NOAA Weather Radio, or local alerting systems for current emergency information and instructions. For those living in Central and Southern New Jersey visit US National Weather Service Philadelphia/Mount Holly http://www.weather.gov/phi/. For those living in Northern New Jersey and the New York Metro area visit US National Weather Service New York NY http://www.weather.gov/okx/. • Do not walk, swim, or drive through flood waters. Turn Around. Don’t Drown! • Stay off bridges over fast-moving water. Fast-moving water can wash bridges away without warning. • If your vehicle is trapped in rapidly moving water, then stay inside. If water is rising inside the vehicle, then seek refuge on the roof. • If trapped in a building, then go to its highest level. Do not climb into a closed attic. You may become trapped by rising floodwater. Go on the roof only if necessary. Once there, signal for help. • If you find yourself in a life threatening situation call 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY!

🐈International Cat Day It’s International Cat Day, which is a great time to educate ourselves on hot weather tips for all your pets! We all love spending these beautiful summer days outdoors with our furry companions, but here are a few tips to ensure your pets are prepared for the summer heat! -Keep pets cool. • Keep pets indoors as much as possible. • Use a hose or let your pet swim in a kiddie pool, lake or stream to cool off. -Cool water • Make sure your pet has access to cool, clean water. • Check the water bowl frequently throughout the day as pets will drink more during high temperatures. -Limit or restrict exercise • Exercise of any kind should be cut back and limited to the cooler, early morning or later evening hours. • Avoid midday heat. -Limit sun exposure • Dogs and cats can get sunburned just like people, especially their ears and noses. -Avoid burned pads on your pet’s feet • Avoid walking your dog on hot surfaces, such as pavement, asphalt, or metal. • Walk your pet in the grass. -Signs of burned pads: • limping or refusing to walk • licking or chewing at the feet • pads are darker in color • part of the pad is missing -If you notice a problem, flush the pad and foot with cool water or a cool compress; get the pet to a grassy area, or if possible carry him. -Contact your veterinarian to examine your pet for signs of deeper burns, blisters and possibly infection. -NEVER leave pets in a parked car! Each year pets die from extreme heat after being left in parked vehicles. Cars can heat up to dangerous temperatures very quickly – even within minutes.

Regrann from @newjerseystatepolice - Yesterday, several young men and women from Irvington, N.J. stopped by Division Headquarters in West Trenton for a tour. They got a tour of the State Police museum, the Regional Operations and Intelligence Center, and even got to check out one of the State Police helicopters. They had a great time learning about our history and asking the troopers questions. Among the kids, there was even a sibling of one of the members of the 106th Trooper Youth Week Class, who graduated last week! We look forward to seeing our Irvington friends again soon! - #regrann #ReadyNJ #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #njtrooper #njstatetrooper #lawenforcement #aviation #aviationunit #helo #chopper
Summer Storms Isolated storms are ongoing throughout the state. Visible satellite shows clouds are building across the region. Storms will increase in coverage and intensity this afternoon. Damaging winds and flash flooding are possible. Continue to check the weather if you have outdoor activities planned. You can protect yourself from risk even if you are caught outdoors when lightning is close by. Safety precautions outdoors: • If the weather forecast calls for thunderstorms, postpone your trip or activity. • Remember: When thunder roars, go indoors. Find a safe, enclosed shelter. • The main lightning safety guide is the 30-30 rule. After you see lightning, start counting to 30. If you hear thunder before you reach 30, go indoors. Suspend activities for at least 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder. • If no shelter is available, crouch low, with as little of your body touching the ground as possible. Lightning causes electric currents along the top of the ground that can be deadly over 100 feet away. • Stay away from concrete floors or walls. Lightning can travel through any metal wires or bars in concrete walls or flooring. Although you should move into a non-concrete structure if possible, being indoors does not automatically protect you from lightning. In fact, about one-third of lightning-strike injuries occur indoors. Lightning strikes may be rare, but they still happen and the risk of serious injury or death is severe. So take thunderstorms seriously. Learn and follow these safety rules to keep yourself safe from lightning. Visit https://www.cdc.gov/features/lightning-safety/index.html. Remember… -NEVER walk, bike, or drive through flooded areas. Obey traffic barriers. Water may be deeper than you think! -Move vehicles to higher ground. -Use caution on the roads. Take it slow and obey posted speed limits. -Severe weather can cause power outages. Know how to report a power outage to your utility company. Go to http://ready.nj.gov/plan-prepare/public-utilities.shtml for public utility information. #ReadyNJ #NJSP #newjerseystatepolice #statepolicenj #njstatepolice #emergencymanagement #thunderstorms #SummerSafety
Heavy Rains Heading Our Way☔ A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most New Jersey counties through late tonight as a slow-moving front and low pressure system will influence our weather. Showers and thunderstorms later today and tonight may produce heavy rain, tapering off after midnight. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect until 6 PM Thursday for Atlantic coastal waters. Rip current risk at beaches remains high through this evening. Impacts to New Jersey Heavy rainfall brings the risk of flash flooding. Rainfall rates of 1” to 2” per hour are possible and may cause flooding in urban areas, roadways, areas with poor drainage, and small creeks and streams. Today’s seas of 4 to 7 feet with wind speeds of 25 to 33 knots may create hazardous conditions for boaters, and rip currents can create dangerous swimming conditions. Remember… -NEVER walk, bike, or drive through flooded areas. Obey traffic barriers. Water may be deeper than you think! -Move vehicles to higher ground. -Use caution on the roads. Take it slow and obey posted speed limits. -Severe weather can cause power outages. Know how to report a power outage to your utility company.

Don’t Get Caught In The Dark🔦 Severe weather can cause your power to go out! Here are a few quick tips to help you prepare before the power goes out: • Charge cell phones and any battery powered devices. • Know where the manual release lever of your electric garage door opener is located and how to operate it. • Purchase ice or freeze water-filled plastic containers to help keep food cold during a temporary power outage. • Keep your car’s gas tank full-gas stations rely on electricity to power their pumps. If you use your car to re-charge devices, do NOT keep the car running in a garage, partially enclosed space, or close to a home, this can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. • If you rely on anything that is battery-operated or power dependent like a medical device determine a back-up plan. Visit http://ready.nj.gov/plan-prepare/power-outages.shtml to learn more! Know how to contact your local power company to report an outage or down power line. For Public Utilities Information including outage maps visit http://ready.nj.gov/plan-prepare/public-utilities.shtml ⚠️ALWAYS assume downed power lines are live. NEVER TOUCH THEM!

Summer Heat🌡️☀️⛱️ Good Morning! There is a Heat Advisory posted from noon to 6 PM today for Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic and Union Counties.

The consequences could be deadly! - Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone. - Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat. - Go to a designated public shelter, shopping mall or library if your home loses power during periods of extreme heat. Stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine if air conditioning is not available. Call NJ 2-1-1 or visit www.nj211.org if you need to find a cooling center. - Stay hydrated! Keep drinking water, even if you don’t feel thirsty. - Remember that pets need water too! Visit animalemergency.nj.gov for more info! For more information visit https://www.cdc.gov/disasters/extremeheat/warning.html If you are heading to the beach to beat the heat remember swim only at beaches where lifeguards are on duty!

Regrann from @newjerseystatepolice - You know, it’s not unusual for the Troops to get a little nervous when the Colonel drops by for a visit—but none get downright angry! Pictured here is Colonel Patrick Callahan after today’s graduation with Adalyn McCann, who was born while her daddy, Trooper Owen McCann, was in the academy. She was all smiles until Kelly and Owen McCann handed their daughter over to the Colonel. We suspect that she wasn’t too pleased that Colonel Callahan and the NJSP occupied so much of daddy’s time for the last 24 weeks! Point taken, Adalyn!

Tropical Storm Chris Reminds Us It’s Hurricane Season! As of this morning, Tropical Depression 3 has intensified and has formed into now named Tropical Storm Chris (TS Chris). Here is what you need to know: • TS Chris is forecast to meander east of the NC coast for the next two days and then move NE in the Atlantic corridor between the Bermuda High and East Coast. • TS Chris is expected to intensify into a Category 1 storm and is forecast to become post-tropical over Newfoundland, Canada by Friday. • That means it is forecast to pass east of New Jersey on Wednesday, likely as a Category 1 storm. Impacts to NJ • There are NO direct weather impacts to New Jersey at this time other than the potential for high surf and rip currents. Check the marine forecast before heading out on the water http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/zone/east/phimz.htm and only swim in the ocean when lifeguards are protecting the area. • As always, we are watching this system closely. TS Chris is a reminder that it is most definitely Hurricane Season! How prepared is your family for a hurricane? Need help getting ready? Don’t know where to start?
