Wisconsin's Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program focuses on preparing for, and responding to, events that pose a substantial risk to the health of the state's residents. Our purpose is to provide information, resources, and expertise to our partners to ready Wisconsin for health threats, emergencies, and disasters.
Winter in Wisconsin can be fun and exciting, but sometimes the conditions can become dangerous. Winter storms can sweep through bringing high winds, large amounts of accumulating and drifting snow, ice, and extreme cold temperatures. Being prepared ahead of a storm will help you get through it safely.
