What is Y.A.N.A. ?

Y.A.N.A. is a FREE telephone reassurance and welfare maintenance program for residents in the Wisconsin Dells School District.

Dispatchers from the Wisconsin Dells Police Department will call participants daily. If the participant does not answer the phone after several attempts, a series of steps will follow to ensure their safety and well-being. These steps may include calling emergency contacts, dispatching the appropriate police and dispatching medical services.
