Kewaunee County News: Siren Tests 1st Wednesday Each Month

Kewaunee County will perform monthly siren tests on the first Wednesday of each month at approximately 11:45 am.

The sirens are for outdoor warning only, and are not intended to be heard inside a home or business. To be warned indoors about severe weather, the Kewaunee County Emergency Management office recommends that each residence have an NOAA weather radio, which can be purchased and programmed at their office.

Residents may also sign up for Code Red, a high-speed telephone emergency notification service that delivers notifications about tornado warnings, freezing water pipes, burn bans, persons of interest, public safety, missing persons and other emergency notifications. To register for Code Red, visit the secure website at and click on the logo CodeRed. For more information, contact the Kewaunee County Emergency Management Office at 920.845.9700.
