Assignment Fox Cities

Monday, May, 26 2014

   For the longest time, we relied on county emergency sirens to warn us of impending
danger in the event of severe weather.  Advances in technology have changed that.
   In addition to warning sirens, we can now learn of severe storms through cell phones,
NOAA weather radios and EmTel, a county system capable of alerting us to other
kinds of danger.
   Outagamie County  Interim Emergency Management Director Christina Muller explains
it all on Assignment Fox Cities, heard on WHBY Thursday, May 29th.   Catch the program
at 6:45 a.m., 12:45 p.m. or 5:45 p.m.
   Some of what Christina shares may be familiar to you, but it certainly is worth a listen,
a refresher course of sorts, as we are now in severe weather season.

     Before the end of  the year, YMCA of the Fox Cities will begin serving health and
fitness-minded residents in and around Waupaca.   After more than a year of study,
the YMCA has agreed to assume operations of Health and Fitness Headquarters,
owned by Waupaca Attorney Rick Johnson.
     The transition should take place sometime after Labor Day.
     Right now, HFH has about 3,500 members and serves those clients at two sites in
the city of Waupaca.   When the transition is finalized, the members become members
of the YMCA with a chance to upgrade the membership.   With the upgrade, members
would be allowed to use YMCA facilities throughout the state.
     YMCA of the Fox Cities President Bill Breider says they have no out-of-pocket expenses
up-front, thanks to a generous subsidy by Attorney Johnson.
     You can hear the entire story posted on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault
and Assignment Fox Cities.

     It wasn't too long ago we had to rely on county sirens to warn us of impending
danger in the event of a storm.  Advances in technology have expanded the offerings,
to include cell phones, NOAA weather radio and EmTel.
     Outagamie county Interim Emergency Management Director Christina Muller
details the value of each in Assignment Fox Cities.   You'll find it on our websie,
whby.com, under Audio Vault.
     Some of the material may be familiar, some is new, but it certainly is worth
a refresher course on what to do if danger is imminent.

     About eight years ago, Outagamie county implemented a death review committee. 
Although the title sounds ominous, it's not.  Goal of the committee is to study trends
of young people dying and develop strategies to prevent that from happening.
     Outagamie County Public Health Manager Mary Dorn, a member of the committee,
says it's part of a statewide initiative.   The committee's documented records become
part of a national registry.
     There are 20 to 30 members on a team, meet monthly, sometimes to conduct
reviews and sometimes not.  Committee members have varied professional
backgrounds, work as a team, and follow a specific protocol.
     Give the program a listen.  You'll find it on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault
and Assignment Fox Cities.
