Winter Weather Code Blue
The Winter Contingency Plan is to be implemented when weather conditions are triggered, as outlined below. This plan is intended to serve as a guide to prevent homeless individuals from serious harm or death during the winter season, usually running from mid-late November through usually March 31st of each year.
A "Code Blue" will be declared when one or more of the following conditions exist:
• The temperature is at or will fall to 40°F (or below) anytime during the overnight period.
• The wind chill factor is at or will fall to 40°F (or below) anytime during the overnight period.
• There are, or will be, blizzard conditions anytime during the overnight period.
"Code Blue" is an emergency status. Individuals seeking shelter during a "Code Blue" may stay in the shelter during the hours of 6 PM until after Morning Chapel (or 9 AM) at which time they must vacate CRM property and continue to check daily on dorm bed availability.
