Municipalities say "what if" tornadoes strike here like Oklahoma

MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) -- How would cities in Central Wisconsin fare if they faced a catastrophic emergency like the recent Oklahoma twisters? Dennis Tweedale CEO of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities gave a presentation to city officials in Marshfield this week about the League’s “Agility” mutual insurance program, which is in place to help participating cities deal with disasters, like killer tornadoes. According to Tweedale, “If something goes wrong, whether it’s a flood, a fire; whether it’s a storm, a tornado, people want their water to turn on, they want their toilets to be able to flush, and they want to be able to communicate with the police and fire. You deliver that in a disaster, and you’re going to be a hero.” Marshfield’s Finance Director Keith Strey says Marshfield already has a carefully designed emergency management plan in place, but the “Agility” program is a great supplement for any unanticipated needs, like the financial chaos that occurs in the wake of an emergency. Strey says that very often, “The disaster after the disaster is the financial disaster.”Approximately 375 communities across Wisconsin currently participate in the “Agility” program, many of them right here in Central Wisconsin.
