Jan 7, 2010: The Upper Midwest is experiencing the brunt of the cold,
with with extreme winds and blowing snow

Don't take any chances today or friday--its going to be fatally cold. At least 7 people have died so far this season, including 4 in Chicago. If you can delay or avoid travel plans through the Midwest, you should do so.

If you must go out in this weather, take it seriously. Have the following in your car:

  • Cell phone with charger
  • Shovel & scrapers
  • Flashlight
  • Extra Hats, coats, mittens, blankets
  • Battery powered radio
  • Snack food and water
  • Road salt or sand
  • First aid kit

Most importantly: Stay tuned to emergency broadcasts and know the weather situation for yourself!

Stay safe, and keep an eye out for those who may need your help.

County Government chooses Weather Defender to improve Public Safety, Emergency Management

by Rory Groves        November 19, 2009  |  4:30 pm  |  Category: Testimonials

"All I can say about the new Weather Defender by SWIFT Weather is WOW! Finally a weather software application that meets the needs of public safety and Skywarn spotters. I was shocked at the ease of the program and the timeliness of the data displayed on our computer monitor. I was also happy to see us get nice timely data at such a competitive price point especially during these times when our budgets are limited for new operational tools. No Emergency Manager or Skywarn spotter should do without the new Weather Defender."
