Code Blue/Red Notifications

The Office of Homeless Services (OHS) and City of Philadelphia may activate a Code Blue when we're expecting very cold conditions and Red when we're expecting very hot conditions.

  • A CODE RED may be declared when heat and humidity become a concern for people who are experiencing homelessness and those more vulnerable to heat-related illnesses. Code Reds also affect pet care.
  • A CODE BLUE may be declared when winter conditions pose a threat of serious harm or death to people experiencing homelessness.
