A lot of talk recently about Joseph Jakubowski and keeping people safe in our area.

In case you haven't heard, Joseph Jakubowski became the subject of a FBI-led search after allegedly stealing weapons from a Janesville gun store. There was also a large letter mailed to President Trump, being described as an anti-religion and anti-government letter that issued threats to schools.

Where he is right now, no one knows. Obviously he is considered a threat and is armed and dangerous. I've been getting e-mails and info about schools on lock down and and local businesses being on high alert.

A lot of people have kids that are home alone for a few hours. Are your kids safe home alone, are they ready for any sort of unpredictable situation?

  • Have a Plan -  What to do in the event of an emergency. Phone numbers, relatives and friends.
  • Fully Stocked First Aid Kit – Everything from band-aids to flashlights.
  • Lock Up The Dangers – Guns, knives, anything dangerous.
  • Check in Hourly - call, text, and have them do the same.
  • Ground Rules - Don't use the stove, limit time online, etc
  • Prevent Boredom - Make sure the kids have things to do, keep them busy so their minds don't wander.
  • Red Cross Courses - Having your kids CPR ready.
