Three Kewaunee County municipalities will be hearing outdoor sirens for the first time in months Wednesday morning around 11:45. Alarms in the Village of Casco, the Village of Luxemburg, and the City of Algoma are turned off from December through February. Emergency Management Director Tracy Nollenberg says the county does not own those sirens. There is a precaution that operating them during the winter could cause damage, so each respective jurisdiction asks that they not be employed.
The sirens are meant to warn people who are outdoors in bad weather or other emergencies.
