MADISON (WKOW) -- All of Wisconsin's 72 counties have emergency plans, but one newspaper reports some counties make it harder for residents to see their plans than others, and some charge fees for a copy of those plans.
Reporters with Gannett Media requested emergency preparedness plans from county officials across the state in late January, with the state goal of seeing if these plans were available to the people they are designed to protect.
The Green bay Press Gazette reports these plans often contain information such as evacuation routes or information about warning systems.
Some counties took weeks to provide the plans, while others had theirs available immediately online. And while some provided plans for free, Columbia County, for instance, estimated it would charge more than $647.
