NO sirens today. Spend the time to talk with your friends, families, or coworkers about your plan!

Reminder: NO sirens today. Please talk with your families, friends, and coworkers about what you would do if you were warned of a tornado.

IF YOU ARE UNDER A TORNADO WARNING, FIND SAFE SHELTER RIGHT AWAY
-If you can safely get to a sturdy building, then do so immediately.
-Go to a safe room, basement, or storm cellar.
-If you are in a building with no basement, then get to a small interior room on the lowest level.
-Stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls.
-Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You’re safer in a low, flat location.
-Watch out for flying debris that can cause injury or death.
-Use your arms to protect your head and neck.

Have you also checked your disaster kit? Is everything still working and not expired? Now is a better time than any to check your kit.

Just A Voice
Dispatcher Poem

You don't know who I am; to you I am just a voice.
It was me who took your frantic call, when you had no other choice.

I spend many hours waiting, to help when you're in need.
"Send help to me, please get them here is often what you plead.

To do my job is complex, but only a few tools are a must
Put your faith in me, I am the one that you can trust.

My ears are a necessity; my mouth a mighty sword
I must use my ears to listen, and then choreograph every word.

I am the protector of this land; I take pride in what I do
I am here to listen and do what is best for you.

The day you place a call to me, might be the worst day you ever had
At least today you know, I too was feeling sad.

I take your problems home with me, I know that's not so good,
But as you felt your tragedy it was by your side I stood.

I walked with you to the door, to let them into help,
I guided you to safety, when all alone you felt.

It is not often we hear praise or even simple thanks,
But the cookies and cards are plenty through police and fire ranks.

The day you placed your call, and I picked up the phone
I hope I made you feel safe and showed you you're not alone.

Remember who I am, I am not just a voice
I am the 911 Dispatcher you called when you had no other choice.

Her mom was being beaten, police say, so she called 911 and ordered pizza. The plan worked.

Friendly reminder to all: The ability to Text to 911 in Brown County is available. The general rule is: Call if you can, Text if you can’t. Texting allows you to request help when calling isn’t an option and it also helps those with disabilities or who are hearing impaired. The article below references Text to 911 as an option when calling may be difficult:

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/her-mom-was-being-beaten-police-say-so-she-called-911-and-ordered-pizza-the-plan-worked/ar-BBX9bst?ocid=se

Police praised the quick thinking of the daughter who got help as her mother was allegedly punched, pushed into a wall and threatened.
