FOND DU LAC COUNTY — The Fond du Lac County Emergency Management is asking for residents to stop calling dispatch for information about emergency orders issued by Gov. Tony Evers.
Director of Communications and Emergency Management in Fond du Lac County Bobbi Hickens said that since Evers announced his "Safer at Home" order, an increase of calls has been noted at the dispatch center. Hickens said that people called and wanted more information about the emergency order and becoming frustrated with dispatchers when they did not know the information.

"The dispatchers need to be available to take calls for people who need police, fire and EMS assistance," said the county. "Even if you call the non-emergency number, you are taking a dispatcher out of service, not allowing them to provide the emergency assistance they need to."
