During the winter season, Montgomery County regularly implements a winter weather, or “Code Blue”, emergency plan. In periods of extreme, life-threatening weather, defined as a wind-chill factor of 20°F or below, multiple County agencies and private health/social organizations will offer expanded services for those without adequate shelter, including the chronically homeless and homeless families with children. The goal of the Code Blue plan is to provide temporary shelter, food and clothing to those in need.
