You can’t look at the newspaper or watch the evening news without hearing about some new or looming threat to our society. Do you ever wonder who is making plans in the event that a real danger reaches Scott County?
Our County and Scott County Commissioner Jon Ulrich have been working long and hard to prepare for and respond to any threat, danger, or emergency we might encounter. Jon led efforts at the state legislature testifying for our need for a regional public safety training center in Scott County, which has since become a reality. Now, every law enforcement agency, fire, or public works department in our County is able to train and prepare for any emergency that we might face.
But the work of improving our safety does not stop there. Jon Ulrich has been a leader in working to see that dangerous roads and intersections throughout our County are brought up to modern safety standards. Safety enhancements have been made on our roads throughout the County and in our community of Savage so that you and your family are protected.
Jon Ulrich has also been a strong advocate for the new Code Red warning system that alerts us in advance of an approaching severe storm or threat of any other kind. Now, we all have the ability to stay informed and not be caught off guard. We’ve also heard about threats to our society from viruses such as Ebola or H1N1. Jon Ulrich serves on the Scott County All Hazards Committee where all our health care and emergency preparedness professionals are constantly working together to prepare for any such emergencies.
This fall, I encourage you to vote for Scott County Commissioner Jon Ulrich. He has been a leader in working to keep our community safe.
