Change in Weekly Outdoor Warning Siren Test for the City of Algoma, Village of Casco and Village of LuxemburgKEWAUNEE COUNTY, WI - Beginning December 1, 2020 until February 28, 2021 no monthly testing of the sirens owned by City of Algoma, Village of Casco and Village of Luxemburg will be conducted to avoid increased maintenance costs caused by snow and ice.
Daily polls will be done with these sirens throughout the winter, which will identify any communication issues.
These individual sirens are owned by each of these jurisdictions. The City of Algoma, Village of Casco, and Village of Luxemburg are responsible for maintenance and repairs to these sirens. Kewaunee County has been authorized to use the sirens for emergencies and other lawful purposes.
Please remember the outdoor warning siren system is for outdoor warning use only. The outdoor warning sirens are not intended to be heard inside your home or business. To receive weather warning information when indoors, Kewaunee County Emergency Management recommends each residence and business have a NOAA weather radio which will alert when severe weather is approaching.
Kewaunee County residents or those who work in Kewaunee County are encouraged to sign up for Rave, our mass emergency notification system, to be informed of emergent messages at www.kewauneeco.org and click on the ‘Stay Informed’ icon which is located at the bottom left of the page, and register their residential address and their phone number(s). Persons who work in Kewaunee County can also register for emergent notifications for their place of employment by registering their cellphone or direct office line.
