Subject: Are You Ready Sauk County? September is Preparedness Month


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Baraboo, WI - Are you Ready Sauk County? Do you have a plan to face an emergency? Are you ready to protect yourself and your family?
To encourage the citizens of Wisconsin to take steps to prepare for a potential crisis, Governor Jim Doyle has proclaimed September as Wisconsin Preparedness Month.

According to a ReadyWisconsin survey conducted in 2009, only about 20% of Wisconsin residents have made basic preparations for large-scale emergencies, like flooding and tornado activity.

Through the ReadyWisconsin program, Wisconsin Emergency Management has gathered and developed a large collection of emergency preparedness tips and facts at ReadyWisconsin.wi.gov. This website will provide you with the information you need to:
 Get a kit: Build fully-stocked disaster kits for your home and car
 Make a plan: What would you do in case of an emergency, how would you contact your family
 Be informed: Learn about potential dangers and how to keep informed about any impending threats
Also on ReadyWisconsin.wi.gov you can participate in our ReadyWisconsin Trivia Challenge! Everyone who tries to answer our preparedness question is automatically qualified to win great prizes including emergency weather radios and ReadyWisconsin coffee mugs.
Sauk County Emergency Management has several planning documents available across from the Emergency Management office which is located on the first floor of the Historic Courthouse in Baraboo.
Sauk County residents can get the latest emergency management information by following our Facebook page “sauk”. Twitter page “sauk_wi_nixle”, and by registering for Nixle at Nixle .com or the Sauk County website at www. co.sauk.wi.us
