The Major Incident Control Committee (MICC) Grangemouth has been supporting public safety at Grangemouth Industrial Complex since 1968. It is made up of technical experts from local companies, BOC, CalaChem, Calor Gas, Diageo, Forth Ports Ltd., Fujifilm, H.W. Coates, INEOS, INEOS FPS, Inter Terminals, Petroineos, Syngenta and Versalis.
Safety is of paramount importance to our companies who train and exercise with Police Scotland, the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service, Scottish Ambulance Service, Falkirk Council and partner agencies to ensure, in the unlikely event of an emergency, known procedures are well practised and followed effectively.
MICC Grangemouth is also responsible for the testing of the Community Warning System installed in and around the Industrial Complex. It is important that everyone – residents and visitors alike – know what to do in the event of an emergency.
This website contains important information about what MICC does, how the public is involved and aims to raise awareness of what the public should do in the unlikely event of a Major Incident arising in the Grangemouth Industrial Complex.
Community Warning – When the sirens are activated by Police Scotland:
At 7pm on the first Wednesday in June and 2:30pm on the first Wednesday in December. Information regarding the tests will be published prior to each test by posters, local media and responders’ websites.
Householders and responsible persons in business/community premises must ensure that all occupants are familiar with the safety advice and the action to be taken. Remember the simple rule: GO IN, STAY IN AND TUNE IN!
