Ottawa County's emergency sirens blast by mistake

OAK HARBOR, Ohio If you heard Ottawa County s emergency sirens blaring at 8:55 a.m. Thursday in the area of FirstEnergy Corp. s Davis-Besse nuclear plant, there was for the record no emergency.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said a service vendor activated six sirens in Ottawa County s Bay Township in error while fixing a problem with the sheriff s radio system.

The unintended activation was reported to the NRC by the Ottawa County Dispatch Center.
