Storm Review Panel Announced

By Katie Kozak. CREATED Sep 5, 2013

 APPLETON -- An announcement today naming the members of a new independent review panel to examine Outagamie County Emergency Management.

The review, being organized by Fox Valley Technical College, stems from the August 7th storms and the county's failure to sound the sirens. Still, those on the panel say, they're looking at the entire hazard system and recommending improvements.

"We'll be doing sort of a post mortem if you will on that particular incident... but as part of a larger review of the entire emergency response process that's in place and looking for ways to improve it so that things are safer for our communities in the future," says panel member and FCTV Executive Dean Patricia Robinson.
