Trash Collection returns to normal

I am happy to announce that Monday, May 18, Advanced Disposal will be resuming large item collection.

We also are asking that residents continue containerizing all materials for standard collection.

We certainly appreciate your patience and understanding as the State navigated these unprecedented times. We know how challenging COVID19 has been for us personally and professionally, and we are looking forward to getting back to some normalcy. As a company we will still be taking the recommended steps provided by the CDC and state/local health departments. Each community program is slightly different, so please contact me directly with any questions or concerns.

Anyone wanting trash and recycle carts contact me with your name, address and size(65 gallon or 95 gallon) carts wanted [email protected]  or 920-921-5999 Kay Murre

FOND DU LAC COUNTY ENHANCES 9-1-1 SERVICES WITH SMART911

Fond du Lac County Communications Center announced today that Smart911 is now available in Fond du Lac County, the first county in Wisconsin to provide this service.

Smart911 allows individuals to create a Safety Profile for their household at www.smart911.com or on the Smart911 App that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and responders to have in the event of an emergency. When an individual makes an emergency call, their Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker, allowing them to send the right responders to the right location with the right information. The Smart911 app provides greater access to the lifesaving benefits of Smart911 and targeted location-based alerts to all individuals. The Smart911 App is available on the Apple Store or Google Play.

With Smart911, individuals can link both home and work addresses to mobile phones, which can be passed on to responders in the field for a more detailed, rapid response. Additional information including pets in the home, vehicle details in the event of an accident, and even emergency contacts can all be included in a Safety Profile. All information is optional, and the individual has the ability to choose what details they would like to include.

“The benefits of this information on a 9-1-1 call from a cell phone are immeasurable,” said Bobbi Hicken, Director of Communications and Emergency Management. “Cell phones do not always provide an accurate location to the 9-1-1 call taker, especially when someone is calling from inside a home or building. Having this information as soon as the call is answered will allow us to be able to send help, even if the person isn’t able to tell us their location.”

Smart911 is currently available in 40 states and more than 1,500 municipalities across the country, and has been credited with positively impacting emergency outcomes including a missing child in which the girl’s photo and physical description were immediately available to 9-1-1 and responders, as well as a heart attack victim where an address and medical notes allowed responders to be dispatched to his location quickly.

Individuals are encouraged to create their Safety Profile with Smart911 today to have their information immediately available to 9-1-1. Smart911 is private and secure, is only used for emergency responses, and only made available to the 9-1-1 system in the event of an emergency call.

 

 


ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY THE FLOOD

There are multiple ways for those affected by the flooding event to request assistance. Those with immediate needs such as help with cleaning out their basements should call 2-1-1 to request this assistance.

Those needing clothing, hygiene products and other items are encouraged to contact the Salvation Army.

Those needing assistance with appliances (furnaces, water heaters, washers/dryers, etc.), rent assistance, vehicles or other larger items will need to complete an application requesting assistance.

They can also be scanned and emailed to [email protected].

At this time, it is not believed that we are going to receive any assistance from FEMA, but as a community, we are coming together to give what we can and help those we are able to.

Those looking to place monetary donations can do so through the Fond du Lac United Way or the Fond du Lac Area Foundation. If writing a check, please include FDL Flood in the memo line.


Flood Watch through 7am Friday 3-15-19

FLOODING LIKELY DUE TO HEAVY RAIN AND SNOW MELT

Fond du Lac County Emergency Management is reminding residents to be aware of the potential for flooding in the next couple days as the snow melts and rain continues. There is a flood watch in effect until 7 a.m., March 15th, 2019.  Residents should use caution when traveling in low-lying areas and other areas prone to flooding – remember turn around, don’t drown! It only takes a few inches of water to sweep a person off their feet and as little as one foot of water to move a vehicle. Flooding may occur in areas not normally prone to flooding due to storm catch basins being blocked with ice and snow. Residents are encouraged to clear catch basins and ensure other normal water flow areas are not obstructed.
