SEPTEMBER IS EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS MONTH IN WISCONSIN

Wisconsin has been hit hard by flooding and tornadoes in 2017. That’s why Gov. Scott Walker has designated September as Preparedness Month to encourage people across the state to take time now to prepare before disaster strikes. “Developing a family emergency plan is important,” said Maj. Gen. Don Dunbar, Wisconsin’s adjutant general and Homeland Security advisor. “Everyone should have a plan that includes information on where to go during an emergency and how to communicate with loved ones if separated in a crisis.” Developing an emergency communications plan is just one step to get ready for emergencies. Each week this September, ReadyWisconsin will highlight easy and inexpensive ways for you and your family to prepare for emergency situations.
