Starting next week Point Beach Nuclear Plant plans to perform annual maintenance on a number of sirens within the 10 miles of the Point Beach Nuclear Plant and others that are in Manitowoc and Kewaunee counties.

The Kewaunee County Emergency Management Office says that during siren maintenance, scheduled for Sept. 16 through Sept. 27, residents may hear actual siren activations for approximately one to three minutes, and notice activity going on and around the siren sites.

Performance of this routine maintenance helps to ensure that sirens in the county work well, should they need activation, the office said.

During the duration of the testing, if individuals have concerns and are unsure whether the activities are in regards to the maintenance, call 920-845-9700 or 920-388-3100 for verification.

In the event of an actual emergency, dial 9-1-1.
