Public Information

Governor Scott Walker has proclaimed April 21-25, 2014 Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week in Wisconsin.

“They have been called cyclones, twisters, whirlwinds, 'The Finger of God' and 'The Tail of the Devil'. They are among the most elusive and most deadly of all natural phenomenon...the tornado."

BE PREPARED

According to a recent survey, 80% of Wisconsin residents had not taken basic emergency precautions—such as making a kit of emergency supplies—and would not be prepared to respond if an emergency or disaster strikes.  Ready America encourages Americans to Prepare, Plan and Stay Informed.  Every school, business and home should take the time to prepare for the many types of emergencies we could face. 

We can do this in three easy steps:

1.             Get a Kit.  When preparing for a possible emergency situation, it's best to think first about the basics of survival: fresh water, food, clean air and warmth.

2.            Make a Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan in advance: how you will contact one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different situations.

3.            Be Informed.  Learn more about the potential emergencies that could happen where you live and the appropriate way to respond to them.

Forest County has scheduled a weather spotter training class to be held on May 20th at 1:00 pm in the Forest County Board Room – attendance is FREE and presented by the National Weather Service out of Green Bay WI. More information can be found here.
