Training Being Offered
During September and October the Kenosha County Public/Private Partnership for Emergency Preparedness hosted training for Kenosha County businesses focused on fire extinguisher training and violence in the workplace. The Partnership has a mission to serve as a bridge between the private, public and nonprofit sectors in promoting cooperation and integration in disaster preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery.

The Partnership would like to thank the businesses that hosted the training events, Gordon Food Service and Beckart Environmental. The Partnership would also like to thank the 23 businesses from throughout the County who participated in the training sessions. Training was provided by Kenosha County Emergency Management, Kenosha Fire, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department, the Pleasant Prairie Police Department and Pleasant Prairie Fire & Rescue.
