BALTIMORE - The Baltimore City health commissioner issued a code blue alert Monday, February 10 that will extend through Wednesday, February 12.
The decision was made due to predicted wind chills in the teens and single digits.
A cod blue alert is aimed at helping vulnerable people in Baltimore find relief from extreme cold weather. A code blue means there is an increased risk for hypothermia, injuries from the cold or even death for those exposed to low temperatures.
During a code blue additional resources are available to stay warm. Baltimore's emergency shelters operate with overflow capacity and workers conduct outreach for vulnerable residents during a code blue.
Baltimore's 311 line will maintain normal hours of 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Through the hotline residents are directed to the agencies where they can report problems or request services.
Citizens can also report issues at
baltimorecity.gov. If you have problems after-hours, you can call (410) 396-3100.
