It's almost our favorite time of year...Public Safety Telecommunicator Week! Show some love to the employees at your local 911 Call Center who serve your community 24/7. These first responders are critical in getting people they help they need when they call 911 and in keeping the first responders on the scene safe. Make it a priority to send a card, drop off a treat, and give them the thanks they deserve.

[6:00 AM CST Friday February 19th]

Expect yet another round of accumulating snow and travel impacts on Sunday. While amounts are not expected to be significant, the snow could come down heavy at times and it will be a wetter snow than we've had in a few weeks. The overall highest amounts are favored to occur near and north of I-80, with a swath of 3-4" possible for portions of the area if heavy snowfall rates persist long enough.

Rain may mix in toward sunset into the early evening south of I-80. The precipitation will end by midnight for most of the area, though light snow may hang on for a bit after in some spots of northeast Illinois and northwest Indiana.

Stay tuned for the latest forecast updates!

Well done Anica!

Anica Seat of Porter County Central Communications was recognized at our December board meeting for answering a call from a 13-year-old. The child advised that his mother was unconscious, with agonal breathing. Anica’s compassion and professionalism led to the child to perform CPR on his mother until responders could arrive on scene. The mother survived due to Anica’s quick ability to guide the child to render help to his mother. Thank you, Anica, for your service!
