Wall activates Emergency Operations Center for storm


WALL TOWNSHIP — Wall Township Police Department announced it has activated its OEM Emergency Operations Center to continue to provide residents with updates for the duration of Winter Storm Orlena, which began impacting the area with snowfall and high winds on Sunday night and will last through Tuesday morning.

The department is also asking residents to stay off of the roadways when possible for safety as the township’s crews work on clearing them of snow, and to provide any power outages to JCP&L.

“…[We] will continue to provide assistance and information to our residents during the current winter weather event. Please be advised that additional snow and winter weather is expected throughout today [2/1/21] and tomorrow [2/2/21],” Wall Police said in a statement on Monday morning. “Residents are advised to keep our roadways clear and postpone any unnecessary travel.”


The Wall Township public school district told all students and staff to remain home on Monday for an all-virtual school day due to the winter storm as well.
