24/7 Sandy Shelter Open at Parsippany High

The warming center at Littleton School will now be open from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. for as long as it is needed, according to Parsippany Police.

Parsippany now has two shelters to provide comfort to residents still lacking electricity due to Superstorm Sandy.

Parsippany Police Chief Anthony DeZenzo said late Wednesday afternoon that an overnight shelter equipped with cots will be available at Parsippany High School located at 309 Baldwin Road starting at 6 p.m.

It will remain open 24 hours a day for the duration of the post-storm recovery period, said Mayor James Barberio.

If you plan on spending the night at the center, bring with you any bed linens, pillows, sleeping bags or air mattresses that you require, said the chief. You may bring your pet with you, he added, but pets will not be allowed inside of the shelter. Parsippany Animal Control will take custody of your pet and take the animal to Parsippany Animal Control until you are ready to leave.

He said residents should bring with them any medications needed.

The warming/charging station at Littleton School 51 Brooklawn Drive, will close at 6 p.m. Wednesday. DeZenzo said it will be open Thursday from 6 a.m.-6p.m. and will remain in operation "for as long as there is a need to keep it operational."
