3 tips to walk on ice: walk like a penguin

Snow can easily disguise ice and slippery conditions, so consider adapting the "Penguin Shuffle" if you can't help but leave the house during this weather advisory. It might look and feel strange, but that's the alternative to a broken body! Doing the Penguin Shuffle can prevent you from slipping on the ice. These great tips from Vox show you how to do it, and how to protect yourself in case you do take a spill.

Reclaim icy sidewalks without slipping.

Friends, we had been hoping we wouldn’t have to share this advice again this season, at least not so soon, but with a snowstorm imminent in Southeast Wisconsin, here you go!

Snowplow drivers will be working hard today to help make roads safer throughout this winter weather event. Please use caution around snowplows and give them space to get the job done. It is illegal to follow a snowplow closer than 200 feet if the plow is removing snow or ice on highways with a posted speed limit of more than 35 mph.

While the snow accumulates in the next few days, please help out our members my shoveling at least a 3-foot circumference around any fire hydrants near your home. Snow tends to accumulate quicker in plow zones. Your assistance allows our crews a better chance at saving lives.

I had such a wonderful time participating in today's Holiday Toy Giveaway at Milwaukee Fire Station 5. Civic leader Andre Lee Ellis led a fantastic event benefiting our youth, and it was a pleasure to join Mayor Cavalier Johnson, Fire Chief Aaron Lipski, and the dedicated public servants of the Milwaukee Fire Department in giving back to our community.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), candles cause 45% of home decoration fires in the month of December. Share this post to remind friends and family to keep candles at least 12” away from anything that can burn, like decorations, furniture, and curtains. Consider utilizing battery-operated flameless candles this year!

Don’t forget to include your Smoke Alarm friends in your holiday plans – make sure you have working smoke alarms on every level of your home including inside and outside of every sleeping area.

A few other tips to stay safe this season:
• practice your fire escape plans with holiday guests,
• and always .

Just like your car and home, Milwaukee Fire Department vehicles and stations need repairs and maintenance. But did you ever consider how and where and by whom all that work is done? I did, and so I found myself in Walker's Point at MFD's Construction & Maintenance Division.

Attention, motorists! Please read below and take note of the new system you'll begin to see on some plows this winter. Flashing green lights are being implemented to increase visibility and alert drivers to proceed slowly with caution.

You may notice flashing green lights on some Wisconsin snowplows this winter. A new law took effect in April allowing county and municipal snowplows to use fluorescent green warning lights in addition to red or amber lights.

The green lights can create a greater contrast than other warning lights to improve visibility, especially during snowstorms. The additional green warning lights are meant to increase safety, enhance driver awareness and improve visibility of maintenance vehicles.
