WGFD CPR Training

Out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest is responsible for an estimated 160,000 deaths a year nationally. CPR, or Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, is a life-saving technique that helps increase survival rates for victims of cardiac arrest. It works by maintaining blood flow to the heart and brain until help arrives.

Every effort to mitigate traffic issues is being taken. Signage stating the closure and detours will be erected in advance of the closures.

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.
