Being prepared for a disaster is often the key to surviving one.
Thank you for visiting the city of Waupaca Emergency Management website. Our Emergency Management committee works to be prepared in case of an emergency in our area.

Here are a few things YOU can do to be prepared:
Do 1 Thing
Do 1 Thing is a web-based, twelve-month preparedness program that focuses on a different area of emergency preparedness each month. Emergency preparedness doesn’t have to be hard or expensive.
Choose one of the easy “things to do” this month and Do that one thing!
If you follow along for an entire year, you will be better prepared to handle most disasters and emergencies. You can jump in anytime and you don’t have to do things in any order!
Do you have a NOAA Weather/All Hazards Radio ?
Weather radios are “smoke detectors for danger.” A NOAA Weather Radio with an alarm and battery back-up is one of the best ways to protect your family, especially at night when the alarm feature can wake you up during severe weather and give you and your family time to seek appropriate shelter. If there is no severe weather or emergency your radio can be switched to a silent, stand-by mode.
