PPE Buyback Program

The State of Wisconsin, in partnership with the Wisconsin National Guard, began a Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) buyback program for individuals and businesses to either donate or sell personal protective equipment to the State of Wisconsin.

This equipment goes directly to benefit Wisconsin's first responders and healthcare professionals who are working to care for our communities on a daily basis. The website to donate or sell equipment can be found here


 

Truck Weight Limits Extended

To keep Wisconsin moving Forward during this trying time, Governor Tony Evers and Secretary Designee Andrea Palm extended the time frame for Department of Transportation officials to issue and extend trucking permits that allow vehicles to carry 10% more weight on Wisconsin roads. More weight = more groceries and supplies to a store near you!
