The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is continuing to monitor weather conditions. At this time (5:15 pm) there have been no weather watches or warnings issued for our area.
Freedom Park has a state of the art lightning detection system; and will send out a warning signal if lightning is detected within 10 miles. The OEM bus is already stationed in Freedom Park, and it is linked to the National Weather Service and has access to minute by minute weather movements.
It is the intent of Medford Celebrates to hunker down and wait out the storm, unless conditions change that warrant a cancellation.
If the fireworks display will be delayed to a later time, or if a cancellation has to occur, notices will be sent out via NIXLE, and posted on both the Medford Township and Medford Celebrates Facebook pages.
