Memorial Day just passed. We are officially enjoying “summer.” If you are like me you are probably going north to enjoy Wisconsin’s lakes, rivers and waterfalls.
So, what happens when you are in Wisconsin’s Northwoods and involved in a car accident. No lighting, few signs, miles from the nearest house…talk about adding stress to a stressful situation.
Marinette County has some good tips on what to do when you are involved in a car accident in rural Wisconsin.
For example, give the 911 operator the name of the road you are on and in which direction you were traveling. Don’t remember this? Give the operator the last town you drove by.
In short, no one ever expects an accident to happen. Drive defensively and pay attention to your surroundings. The easier it is for the police and first responders to find you the better.
