MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) Wood County will soon be getting a new tool to help manage unexpected emergencies. Mondopads are the latest hi-tech tablet-style devices used to manage almost any type of crisis, and Marshfield’s interim fire chief Bob Haight says they’re straight from the pages of CSI television shows. There will be four mondopads in the system, connecting the Wood County Emergency Operations Center with emergency coordinators in Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids and at the Wood County Health Department.

According to Haight, “This will allow us, in a very fluid situation, to be able to talk back and forth with various other entities, and then develop a very specific plan of attack.” Two of the units have already been arrived, and Haight that the entire system should be up and running within about two or three weeks.
