Get ready for severe weather season
Listen, Act and Live! Those words could protect you and your family during severe weather season and other emergencies. Listening to warnings and taking action immediately saves lives.
That's why Wisconsin Emergency Management, Ready Wisconsin, the National Weather Service and the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association have teamed up for Wisconsin's Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week, April 21-25. As part of the kick-off of this week of awareness, Tod Pritchard from Wisconsin Emergency Management will present a program on Personal Preparedness on Monday, April 21 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at the United Way office at 705 South 24th Ave, Ste. 400B in Wausau.
- Find out what to do in the event of a tornado or other major emergency.
- Learn the difference between tornado myth and fact.
- Understand the difference between watches and warnings for different type of storms, how they are determined and what it means for you in your location.
- Find out about some of the new severe weather notification systems available to you and how they work.
- Learn about tornado safety information to help keep you safe whether at home, work or play.
Taking a few minutes now to make a plan and knowing what to do can make a big difference when you need to take action. This program is part of the Retirement Well-Being series presented by United Way RSVP, a 55+ volunteer program. These community education programs are free and open to the public, so feel free to tell others and invite a friend or neighbor to join you.
