Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson is calling for an independent review of the county’s emergency response and management. 

The request for an inquiry comes in the midst of a critical audit of the August 7th tornadoes that found Emergency Management should have sounded the emergency sirens that night. 

Nelson says the most essential and critical service is providing public safety. 

The county has declared four emergencies in just over two years. 

Nelson says the county excels in response and coordination with local municipalities, but questions remain on county policy and procedure on the activation of sirens and maintenance of infrastructure. 

The county board meets tonight to discuss possible disciplinary actions for the failure to activate the sirens for the August 7th storm that spawned five tornadoes.
