It will be a quieter winter for several Kewaunee County communities as far as outdoor warning sirens are concerned. Monthly tests of the sirens in Algoma, Luxemburg and Casco have been cancelled from December 4th through March 4th. The sirens will remain operational for emergency use. Kewaunee County Emergency Management Director Tracy Nollenberg says the decision to temporarily end monthly tests is intended to make sure the outdoor sirens remain in peak operating condition and save taxpayers money.
Emergency Management Services will continue to monitor the sirens remotely to detect possible communications problems.
