(7:15PM - 3/13/21) It's that time of year again...Time to push the clocks forward 1 hour at 2AM tonight. Losing an hour of sleep tonight and having to get used to the time change can be hard for some, but the good news is that it will once again be staying light out later in the evening beginning tomorrow. It's also another sign that spring is around the corner!
This is also a good time to check batteries in your smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, as well as your weather radio.
(12:00PM - 3/1/21) This week is severe weather preparedness week for Illinois. We are once again at that time of year where focus will eventually begin to shift from wintry weather to severe weather. This is a good time to review all home/vehicle/personal/pet preparedness/safety, as well as ensure you have a working weather radio for your home.
We have put together a page with several useful links, which can be accessed from the link below. From extreme heat to flooding to tornadoes...We have included preparedness/safety tips for you and your home, as well as some helpful tips for your pets.
