Kids share how their families are ATC Ready

Dozens of families have a better understanding of security, safety and emergency preparedness after attending an ATC Ready Night Out event in October. American Transmission Co. employees, retirees and their families learned what it takes to be prepared for an emergency through displays and presentations from ATC’s security teams, local first responders, American Red Cross of Wisconsin, Infinity Martial Arts, gardening expert and horticulturist Melinda Myers, Alliant Energy and more.

ATC Ready is ATC’s preparedness plan to respond, restore and recover from emergency incidents. The ATC Ready Night Out event provides both children and their parents with tips and information on how families can stay safe in emergencies.

Families were able to explore Alliant’s bucket truck, learn how emergency responders save lives in an ambulance and even explore a real helicopter. At the event, children shared how their families are ATC Ready for any emergency through artwork. Scroll through the gallery to see some of their creations.
