Who's to blame for tornado sirens failing in Outagamie County storms?
Appleton -- When a series of tornadoes touched down, in central Wisconsin earlier this month, the warning sirens failed to go off in Outagamie County.
Those August 7 storms leveled a church in New London and left thousands of residents without power.
The county's public safety committee says a tower designed to activate the sirens wasn't staffed or properly maintained. They say the sheriff's department deserves part of the blame, but they're also recommending the county's emergency management director be disciplined, possibly even fired.
