MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - When the worst happens, will you be ready? A new poll says you probably won’t be. A poll done for state officials by UW-Madison shows that 80 percent of Wisconsinites are not prepared to respond to emergencies like floods or power outages. That’s because they don’t have disaster kits – and they have not planned in advance on how they’ll communicate to make sure each other is okay. The UW said most people it surveyed could not even locate the emergency broadcasting channel on their radios. Officials say they’ll begin an awareness campaign. They’ll urge families to have a kit with enough food, water, and other supplies to survive for three days after a disaster.
