Newsmakers: Coping with Wisconsin Emergencies
State government’s new emergency management administrator, Brian Satula, remembers leading an Oak Creek Fire Department training session on 9/11. In a Newsmakers interview on Sept. 8, the retired Oak Creek fire chief said he and Milwaukee-area firefighters, police and first responders immediately worried that other planes piloted by terrorists were heading for Milwaukee. But America is safer from terrorist attacks now than on 9/11, Satula added. He also said homeowners and business owners whose property is damaged by disasters should know that FEMA aid "won’t make your whole." And homeowners should read their insurance policy to know what is and isn’t covered for the two most common types of Wisconsin emergencies — tornadoes and floods, Satula said.
