Emerald Ash Borer - Forestry, Land & Parks
EAB was first discovered in North America near Detroit, Michigan in 2002. Since then the beetle has spread to Canada and more than a dozen states, including Wisconsin.

Emerald ash borer was found for the first time in Wisconsin in August 2008 near the community of Newburg, several miles northeast of West Bend.

Since then, emerald ash borer has been confirmed in Adams, Brown, Buffalo, Calumet, Columbia, Crawford, Dane, Dodge, Door, Douglas, Fond du Lac, Grant, Jefferson, Kenosha, La Crosse, Milwaukee, Monroe, Oneida, Outagamie, Ozaukee, Racine, Rock, Sauk, Sheboygan, Trempealeau, Vernon, Walworth, Washington, Waukesha and Winnebago counties. These counties are under quarantine. Green, Iowa, Juneau, Kewaunee, Lafayette, Manitowoc and Richland counties are under quarantine because of their proximity to infestations in neighboring counties. We have not confirmed the presence of EAB there, however.

Background information regarding EAB can be found on the Web at:

Identifying and Preventing Bed Bugs - Health
Bed bug infestations are becoming increasingly common due to changes in pest control practices, bed bug resistance to pesticides, and the increased mobility of the human population (i.e. global travel and distribution of goods).

They are most commonly found in residential homes and other locations where people sleep, but they may also infest other locations such as retail shops, theatres and transportation services (e.g. buses and planes).

Bed bugs are not necessarily a sign of personal cleanliness.
Identifying Invasive Plant Species - Forestry, Land & Parks
Invasive plants threaten the long-term health and sustainability of Wisconsin's forests.
Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) - Emergency Management
Local and State Emergency Officials and the National Weather Service will have another tool for alerting the public to dangerous conditions - These emergency alerts will be sent to the newer version of cell phones in affected areas. Alerts will continue to be issued or available on other sources including radio/TV stations, on NOAA Weather Radios and local sirens. These emergency alerts will be activated by cell towers, so if you are driving through an alerted area, you will automatically see the message on your cell phone.

Weather Alerts
These messages will include:

• Tsunami Warnings
• Hurricane and Typhoon Warnings
• Tornado Warnings
• Flash Flood Warnings
• Extreme Wind Warnings
• Dust Storm Warnings


Click To View Public Service Announcement (30seconds)

Thunderstorm warnings will not be issued on the WEA system. These short messages may look like a text message and are limited to 90-characters. Other key information includes:

• The alert message will include a unique ringtone and vibration that will be repeated twice
• Cell phone users WILL NOT be charged for WEA Messages
• Emergency alerts will not interrupt any calls or downloads in progress. You will receive the alert when you end your call.
• The system does not identify your location or phone number. It simply sends the message to all devices in a given area
• Cell phone providers will conduct a monthly test on the third Thursday

If you have an older model cell phone, you may not receive the Wireless Emergency Alerts. Check with your service provider to find out if your phone is WEA-capable.

Other Types of Cell Phone Alerts
Later in 2012, first responder groups will also be able to issue an alert to cell phones for emergency items including Amber Alerts for child abduction, local emergencies required evacuation or immediate action and Presidential Alerts during a national emergency. Cell phone users can opt out of receiving these alerts by contacting their cell phone provider.
