Winter Awareness Week

Winter is coming, and this week is Winter Awareness Week in Wisconsin. Winter weather can be troublesome and even deadly, especially when people are not prepared for it. The state, Fond du Lac County Emergency Management and the Public Health Department are encouraging residents to take time to prepare for the winter season. 

Fond du Lac County has a history of winter storms, ice storms, and extreme cold events – with an average of 2.5 winter storm events each year, along with potential for other weather-related issues. It’s recommended to have an emergency plan, along with a supply kit in your home and vehicle.
