N.J. town designates camp as emergency shelter

ALEXANDRIA TOWNSHIP, N.J. — The Salvation Army’s Camp Tecumseh has been designated by the township as the shelter for its residents during times of extended power outages or other emergencies, reports the Hunterdon County Democrat – NJ.com.

At the March 13 Township Committee meeting, Jerry Twardy, coordinator of the township Office of Emergency Management, is quoted saying that the Salvation Army officials “are happy to partner with us.”

According to the news report, the summer facilities that house hundreds of young campers are shut down and winterized in the off-season, but there are two buildings that can be set up overnight — one will sleep 24 and another will sleep 25.
