FANWOOD, NJ -- The National Weather Service has predicted high temperatures and poor air quality for today. To help those in need of heat relief, the Fanwood Police Department has designated the Chelsea Senior Living Center, 295 South Ave., as a cooling station. Anyone needing transportation to the cooling station, should call the Fanwood PD at (908) 322-5000.
 
During the period of high heat and humidity, residents and visitors are urged to limit exposure outside, particularly during the hottest part of the day -- roughly from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.  When visiting a relief station, bring any medications and/or specialty items that you may need.
 
 
Meanwhile, those who must be outside should take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water. High body temperatures and dehydration will make other medical conditions such as heart and breathing problems much worse. It is very important to stay cool and hydrated when the heat index reaches these dangerous levels.
 
"Please check on your elderly neighbors and advise them of the cooling station at the Chelsea," said Fanwood Police Chief Richard Trigo. "Remind them to remain hydrated and to contact the Fanwood Police  in case of an emergency."

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.

April 21, 2018

Dear Editor:

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union ...
