Three sirens need repairs after test

The county will be repairing three tornado warning sirens that failed to operate during Wednesday's emergency drill.

Adams County Emergency Management director Chip Volcek said three sirens didn't activate during the test.

"We have a repair man looking at those," he said. "We're trying to get those up and running by April 5 for the next test."
The sirens will be tested on the first Saturday of the month through the severe weather season. Other than non-functioning sirens, Volcek said the test went as anticipated.

Even without three sirens, Volcek said other nearby sirens could be heard. Since the sirens are inactive for six months at a time, he said there are sometimes problems.
