Here is an interesting video from winter weather in Wisconsin that shows a very dangerous pileup that occurred over a 5 minute period. So many cars driving too fast for conditions caused continuous wrecks.
If you get into a dangerous situation like this, use extreme caution and consider staying in your vehicle or at least get out of the way of oncoming traffic. This video shows people getting out to look or help other drivers and continually putting themselves in harms way.
Watch the whole video and see the dangers that unfold. Knowing what could happen might save your life. Be safe.
A new twitter account has been created to communicate timely information to the communities we serve. You can come directly to this site (www.wpfirerescue.org) or follow us on twitter (@westpulaskfd) to get up-to-date info involving major incidents, large weather events, or other needs where we feel timely info can help you plan or react to community news. This won’t be used heavily but will become quite active during large events so we can provide timely updates to automatically deliver community updates like road closures, power failure/restoration efforts or impacts to emergency services caused by major events.

Recent numbers show 90% of Arkansas 911 centers are able to use Smart911, unfortunately, only 11% of Arkansans have signed up for the service. That is only about 24,000 people statewide. We need your help to increase these numbers for this free service that can help emergency services help those in need. Please share with your family, friends, and neighbors that haven’t signed up yet. So many folks haven’t heard of Smart911 yet and we don’t have a better way to spread the word that those of you that have signed up and seen how easy it is to be prepared for an emergency situation by signing up at SMART911.com. Thanks for your continued support!
