After meeting with groups that are currently collecting donations for those affected by the hurricane they have determined that at this point they do not have a need for any more clothing or baby supplies. Items that were specifically requested were:
-contractor style trash bags
These items can be brought to 7 Days Bar & Grill in Union Beach on Union Ave.
We have also been advised that free meals are available tonight at Monmouth Park Racetrack starting at 5pm (sorry we do not have more specific information).
The Northern Monmouth Chamber of Commerce will soon be taking up the task of coordinating all donations. As soon as we have more information we will post it here.
A curfew still remains in effect for Hazlet Township. The revised curfew hours are 7pm to 6am.

*** A SPECIAL REQUEST FOR FIRE, EMS AND POLICE AGENCIES WHO FOLLOW OUR PAGE **
To all of our Fire, EMS and Police friends around the world. As you may know, our community has been working hard to support the volunteer firefighters in our neighboring community of Union Beach who lost more than half of their fire pagers and most of their portable radios (along with at least two Class A Pumpers an
d all but one fire house) when their town was decimated by a 15 foot storm surge and 87 MPH winds associated with Hurricane Sandy. Most of their firefighters homes were either completely destroyed or are now uninhabitable and must be demolished.
We are closing down the Virtual EOC here on facebook for another day
Alright fellow Hazlet citizens, we are going to close down the Virtual EOC here on facebook for another day. It seems hard to believe that our first post regarding Hurricane Sandy was 12 days ago. We will be back at our posts tomorrow morning bright and early. As always, if there is anything urgent to report, we will get it right out to you, but chances are you won't see any substantive news until tomorrow morning.
(On a personal note, does anyone else find it amazing that 12 days have passed since our first mention of the storm?)
77% of the township with power!
Oh OK, one more update, just because it is good news: we are up to 77% of the township with power! Still not 100% but we are pushing hard for West Keansburg (the entire Keansburg Substation is still down), the Line Road area, Sam's Trailer Park, the Laurel Avenue area, and the localized roads and neighborhoods that are still out.
Chief of Police James Broderick is out right now personally checking the entire community for remaining outages and we will forward that to JCP&L Executives once again. Hang in there folks, we are pushing hard for you!
Want to know how much your collective efforts have helped during the storm emergency?
Want to know how much your collective efforts have helped during the storm emergency? During the period of 10/27 through 11/4, the township's facebook page (and all of our facebook friends reposts and likes) have reached more than 40,000 people on Facebook. Together we have done many amazing things this week!
