Warning siren system being upgraded in Outagamie County

APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Outagamie County will upgrade its warning system, forcing the sirens to shut down for two weeks.

The project, which begins Monday, will replace the radios used to control the sirens. That will be needed to comply with federal standards.

Work will include the installation of two base radio transmitters, a repeater, 33 siren control radios and 12 controller radios. The county says the existing antenna will be used as a cost-saving measure.

The total expense is estimated at $95,488.

This comes after county's sirens were not used and did not work for an August storm that caused millions of dollars in damage.
