Flood Watch: If you are in an area that floods. Stay up-to-date on the most current storm information, fill bathtub with clean water, move valuable in a higher place, turn off utilities if authorities ask and be prepared to evacuate.

Flood Warning: Have a battery powered radio to listen for updates, if outdoors climb to the highest place, don't walk through any flood waters, and if driving and you have come to a flooded area turn around.

During Evacuation: If asked to evacuate, do so immediately. leave early enough to avoid flooded roads, never attempt to drive or walk through flood waters, listen to the EAS for messages, and follow the recommended routes.

After the Flood: Don't enter a flood-damaged building unless it has been cleared as safe by an inspector, be alert for gas leaks (don't strike a match or use open flame unless there isn't a gas leak), don't use appliances, and contact the local emergency management agency.

Severe Weather Awareness Week! March 17- March 23rd.

During the Spring and Summer months, thunderstorms are more prevalent in Ohio. We all know that thunderstorms can be extremely dangerous and deadly at times. The National Weather Service (NWS) is responsible for issuing sever weather alerts in 3 different ways: watch, warning, advisory.

1. Watch: potential or conditions could cause for dangerous weather 
2. Warning: dangerous weather storm is coming and immediate action must be taken
3. Advisory: conditions aren't serious but want you to be aware that they could advance to a watch or warning.

Robert Wyse - Retirement

As February comes to an end here in the next week, it ends on a Special Note for the Wauseon Fire Department. In February of 1979 the Wauseon Fire Department gained an amazing Firefighter named Robert Wyse. He showed compassion, dedication and care every time he was representing our department. Through the years he has had many sleepless nights and missed meals, took time away from his own family and their needs to meet the needs of others. You were dedicated to each and every one in this community and helping others every chance you got. I only met Robert “Bob” a year ago in January but let me tell you the amount of knowledge, compassion, care and selflessness this gentleman has showed in that short period of time to me will never be forgotten. Thank you for your hard-work, dedication, selflessness, compassion and care you showed to every single person you came across when representing the Wauseon Fire Department whether in uniform or not. We wish you the best of luck in the years to come as you say “See you Later” to the Wauseon Fire Department. Here is to you Bob for 40 years of service to your community and to the Wauseon Fire Department!

Thank you for all that you did and continue to do for this community!

Yours Truly,

Brittany Roof
Executive Assistant
Wauseon Fire Department
