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.

HWY 83 Construction

Update: 05JUN15
This coming week, the WI DOT expects to have another switchover at the north end - on June 11th, subject to weather and final scheduling. At that time, the southbound lanes will again open up from Brandybrook Road to the USH 18/STH 83 roundabout.
Also, motorists are encouraged to be especially observant and careful when driving through construction zones. Following the next switchover, there will be one northbound and one southbound lane from USH 18 to Brandybrook Road. The contractor may change which lane is open from one day to the next to accomplish specific work. Motorists really need to pay attention.


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.
