A great day for Brown County and Northeast Wisconsin!

I'm excited to announce that Brown County has reached a tentative agreement to purchase part of the Pulliam Plant site! This site is a vital asset not just for the greater Green Bay area, but for the economic growth potential for the Port of Green Bay - The Port of Call for All that impacts all of northeastern Wisconsin. I want to thank Mayor Eric Genrich, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation CEO Missy Hughes, and Sen. Andre Jacque for bringing all of this together by recognizing the importance of port growth and the revitalization of the Fox River waterfront. (Photo from Jeff Bollier).

https://dma.wi.gov/DMA/wemnews/2020wemnews/20244

Some of the dangers associated with winter storms include loss of heat, power and telephone service and a shortage of supplies. To help protect your family, now is the time to put together a disaster supply kit. Here are some items to include:

• Flashlights and extra batteries
• Battery-powered NOAA Weather Radio and a commercial radio
• Bottled water and non-perishable food that requires no cooking
• First-aid supplies
• Fire extinguisher, smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector
• If appropriate, extra medications and baby items
• If you have an emergency heating source such as a fireplace or space heater, make sure you have proper ventilation
• Make sure pets have shelter and plenty of food and water

For additional information, contact your county or tribal emergency management office, the National Weather Service (https://weather.gov) or the state’s ReadyWisconsin campaign (https://readywisconsin.wi.gov).
