Welcome

Atlantic Highlands is a small Victorian town on the New Jersey shore overlooking lower New York Bay, with Manhattan in the distance. Its hills include the highest point on the eastern seaboard south of Maine.

Many of Atlantic Highlands' Victorian homes have been preserved and restored, adding to the charm of small-town living and providing interesting walking tours in the historic district.

What to do in extreme heat:

  • Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as you can. Air-conditioning is the number one way to protect yourself against heat-related illness and death. If your home is not air-conditioned, reduce your risk for heat-related illness by spending time in public facilities that are air-conditioned and using air conditioning in vehicles. Contact your local health department or locate an air-conditioned shelter in your area.
  • Do not rely on a fan as your main cooling device during an extreme heat event.
  • Drink more water than usual and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink.
  • Check on a friend or neighbor and have someone do the same for you.
  • Limit use of the stove and oven—it will make you and your house hotter.

Even young and healthy people can get sick from the heat if they participate in strenuous physical activities during hot weather:

  • Limit your outdoor activity, especially midday when the sun is hottest.
  • Pace your activity. Start activities slowly and pick up the pace gradually.
  • Drink more water than usual and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink more. Muscle cramping may be an early sign of heat-related illness.
  • Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.

If you play a sport that practices during hot weather, protect yourself and look out for your teammates:

  • Schedule workouts and practices earlier or later in the day when the temperature is cooler.
  • Monitor a teammate’s condition and have someone do the same for you.
  • Seek medical care right away if you or a teammate has symptoms of heat-related illness.

Everyone should take these steps to prevent heat-related illnesses, injuries, and death during hot weather:

  • Stay in an air-conditioned indoor location as much as you can.
  • Drink plenty of fluids even if you don’t feel thirsty.
  • Schedule outdoor activities carefully.
    • Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing and sunscreen.
    • Pace yourself.
  • Take cool showers or baths to cool down.
  • Check on a friend or neighbor and have someone do the same for you.
  • Never leave children or pets in cars.
  • Check the local news for health and safety updates.

COVID-19 Updates and Information

Monmouth County Health Department App:

Please use the link below for County Information on Covid 19 numbers. 
This link is updated every Thursday
https://www.visitmonmouth.com/

The Monmouth County Health Department has launched its new app which will look to provide residents and visitors to Monmouth County with real-time news and information about services available through the County Health Department. The App offers a variety of information and features including health-related services, clinics and events, emergency preparedness resources and more. 

The App is available in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.


Free At-Home Testing is Available

The NJ Department of Health and Vault Medical Services have partnered to offer a free, at-home COVID-19 saliva test kit that is available to every New Jerseyan who thinks they need a test – even if you don't have symptoms.

The kit will be shipped through UPS with next-day delivery. Once received, you will connect over Zoom with a Vault healthcare professional who will walk you through the test and answer your questions.

When complete, the test can be sent back in a prepaid package via UPS next-day shipping. You will receive your test results 24 to 48 hours after your sample arrives at the lab.

In addition, in-person testing is available at locations across the state, including free testing. Learn more about COVID-19 testing in New Jersey at covid19.nj.gov/testing.

 

Life Support Equipment - JCP&L

If any member of your household depends on electrically operated life-support equipment, please let us know by calling 1-800-662-3115. JCP&L will send you a form that must be completed and signed by your physician every year to verify that you have life-support equipment.

When we receive your completed form, we will add your name to our Critical Care list. The list will be used during a power outage to contact all Critical Care Customers by telephone if the outage may affect their electric service for more than 24 hours.

In addition, the list will be provided to county and municipal Offices of Emergency Management. There is no charge for this service. In case of power outages, it's also important that life-support customers have a contingency plan, such as a battery backup.


A message from the Atlantic Highlands Police Department:

When a crisis affects the Borough of Atlantic Highlands, Municipal and Emergency Management Officials must be able to reach residents instantly with warnings, information, and updates. In order to ensure that residents can be contacted quickly and effectively, the Borough of Atlantic Highlands uses Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as its Emergency Notification service provider.

Swift911 in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls (along with an email and/or text if you desire) to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. All the calls that you receive will have the caller ID listed as Borough of Atlantic Highlands or AHNJ for text messages.

Whether residents need to be informed of fire hydrant testing, a water main break, approaching storm, State emergencies, or other crisis, the emergency notification system is the most efficient way to reach our residents with news.
