Following this morning’s power outages that continue to affect the downtown Madison area, Dane County reached out to the City of Madison to assist in providing support and services. As the proper entities work to resolve the power outages and assess damage, Dane County has and will continue to work with service providers to coordinate information and updates.

Dane County 911 operations are being run out of the East District Campus. All 911 lines are working. During the power outage, people in the homeless day resource center, The Beacon, were moved to the Madison Public Library. The Beacon is anticipated to open again at 8:00am tomorrow.

All nonessential county employees were sent home earlier today.
