FRANKLIN AND WILLIAMSON COUNTIES, IL (KFVS) - The Franklin-Williamson Bi-County Health Department has created a website to prepare residents with respiratory illness to protect their health in extended power outages.

The website,, provides information and resources to people who rely on power-operated medical equipment, home medical equipment companies, and community emergency planners.

"The BREATHE Easier in Power Outage Emergencies" website takes the guesswork out of the planning and preparedness process for residents," says Ronda Koch, FWBCHD director of emergency preparedness and BREATHE lead developer.
