Stay on top of weather conditions...a reminder that you need to take responsibility for your own safety.
The City of Waupaca Office of Emergency Management has an important message for the community!
The Indiana State Fair stage collapse is a tragic reminder of how quickly weather can cause great harm. Let this tragedy be a reminder that you need to take responsibility for your own safety. Stay on top of weather conditions by signing up for a free severe weather notification text for your cell phone. If you have Smartphone monitor radar at one of the many free radar sites. If your area is under a severe weather warning take cover immediately, do not wait for a cancellation of your event.
The National Weather Service office in Green Bay is just one source for local forecasts and radar information: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/grb/
