Algoma has placed public safety on the front burner in preparation for severe weather and emergency response protocols. City of Algoma Administrator Jeff Wiswell says a recently conducted city wide flood-focused training exercise with local and state agencies prepares the city for a worst case scenario.
Wiswell says the city received a lot of positive feedback for providing shelter to several people during a tornado warning last month in which people utilized the city hall basement. The City of Algoma also has just completed a workers compensation study to help with safer work habits for employees, according to Wiswell.
