In order to be able to save the lives of sudden cardiac arrest patients and avoid neurological damage, a steady supply of oxygen to the heart and brain is necessitated. Life-sustaining circulation can be created through effective and uninterrupted chest compressions. Performing manual chest compressions of high quality is both difficult and tiring, and impossible in certain situations. The quality varies depending on who provides CPR and deteriorates quickly after only one, two minutes.


Waukesha County Forest Fire Danger Rating:  HIGH

Burning permits are suspended in 22 counties today as strong winds and dry conditions ushers in what is expected to be Wisconsin’s first widespread risk of high to very high fire danger. Most of the suspended permits are in the northwest and southern half of the state. We know now is the time of year when you may be burning, but we recommend holding off on any outdoor burning until conditions improve.



Exit Drills in the Home
Plan Ahead! If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have only a few minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go if there is a fire.

Emergency Vehicles and Roundabouts

Drivers are trained to pull over when an emergency vehicle is coming because it’s the law. In the case of roundabouts, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) states that motorists must clear a roundabout if they hear (or see) an emergency vehicle coming. Motorists should immediately exit the roundabout at the next right.
