LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - La Crosse County officials are preparing to help if an emergency impacts Super Bowl weekend.
Minnesota and Wisconsin officials asked regional Emergency Management departments to be prepared in case the Twin Cities area needs help with an emergency.
While La Crosse is unlikely to be called on, crews are ready to lend support where needed.
"The other communities that are much closer, like Eau Claire, Rochester Minnesota, are most likely to be called upon first to provide aid, and then we'd be the back-up to them. So I think as long as we're aware of what's going on, and we're ready to provide whatever's asked of us, I think we're going to be in good shape," said La Crosse Co. Emergency Management Coord. Keith Butler.
Super Bowl 52 is on February 4th at the Vikings' U-S Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
