Waushara County Clean Sweep Program Information
A device designed to provide quick assistance to persons suffering a heart attack is now available in the Pearl Lake area. The external unit, known as an automated external defibrillator (AED), automates the diagnosis of treatable rhythms meaning that lay responders or bystanders are able to use it successfully with little no training. From April to October, the unit will be accessible to the public, housed in a prominently displayed cabinet at the Pearl Lake Campsite, W4585 S. Pearl Lake Road. During the winter months please dial 911.
The siren will sound continuously for 3 minutes for a tornado warning. It does not sound for a tornado watch nor does it sound an all clear after the dangerous weather has passed. The county tests all of the tornado sirens on the first Saturday of each month at 1pm for a short interval.
Tornado watch means weather conditions are right for a tornado to form in your area.
Tornado warning means a tornado has been sighted and is moving in your direction; take cover in a protected area immediately.
