Are you ready for an emergency? September is Preparedness month and Wisconsin Emergency Management encourages residents to get ready for anything unexepected. Emergency management spokesman Tod Pritchard says preparing can start with three important steps. Make a plan for what to do in an emergency, get an emergency supply kit and be informed about emergencies that could happen in your community. Pritchard says another new tool that can be a life-saver are wireless emergency alerts that go straight to your cellphone.
