Top News Stories NNDC for Friday

Dubois County (NNDC):

Ozone Alert for Southern Indiana:

  • Southwest Indiana – Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Greene, Knox, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick

IDEM encourages everyone to help reduce ozone by making simple changes to their daily habits. You can:

  • Walk, bike, carpool or use public transportation
  • Avoid using the drive-through and combine errands into one trip
  • Avoid refueling your vehicle or using gasoline-powered lawn equipment until after 7 p.m.
  • Turn off your engine when idling for more than 30 seconds
  • Conserve energy by turning off lights or setting the air conditioner to 75 degrees or above

Anyone sensitive to changes in air quality may be affected when ozone levels are high. Children, the elderly and anyone with heart or lung conditions should reduce or avoid exertion and heavy work outdoors, as well as be advised to stay hydrated as the heat is also a factor.

 

Dubois County Correction Programs Help with Jail Overcrowding:

Arrested individuals who take part and graduate from treatment programs offered through our Dubois County Corrections actions significantly lower their chances of winding up arrested and jailed again.  This is a significant credit to our local law enforcement and something the community should be proud of.
