Warming Stations to Open Around Woodbridge

The public will be permitted to use a number of buildings around Middlesex County as warming stations.

As the area remains bitter cold, a number of warming stations will be open around the county on Wednesday, Jan. 8, according to the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

Around Woodbridge, residents without ample heat can warm up at the Woodbridge Community Center between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In Perth Amboy, the Salvation Army, 433 State St. will be open until 5 p.m., the YMCA at 357 New Brunswick Ave. will be open from 5:30 to 9:45 p.m. and municipal buildings will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

In Carteret, the Community Center at the library, 100 Cooke Ave., will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and the police station will be open 24 hours. 

In Edison, the senior centers at 2963 Woodbridge Ave. and the intersection of Inman and Grove Avenues will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

“I encourage all residents whose heat has failed or is not working properly or who are experiencing extreme cold due to other circumstances to go to your local warming station,” said Freeholders Director Ronald G. Rios. “It is our duty as elected officials to safeguard the health of our citizens, especially now when these temperatures put their health and safety at great risk.”

For more information, residents are asked to call their local police department of office of emergency management.
