ALBANY - With severe spring weather season approaching, nearly 30 third-grade students at Albany Elementary School learned how to be prepared in the event of a disaster or emergency during an event March 21 at the school. The students participated in the Student Tools for Emergency Planning program, a statewide program run by Wisconsin Emergency Management. The STEP program teaches students how to be prepared for disasters, including blizzards, tornadoes, flooding, storms and fires, and develop an emergency plan with their families.
