The bi-annual testing of Grangemouth’s Community Warning System will take place on Wednesday 6th June at 7pm. The system, operated by Grangemouth Industrial Complex’s Major Incident Control Committee (MICC), will broadcast warning tones and verbal instructions to the public to ensure they are aware of how to react in the unlikely event of a major toxic gas release in their local community. The test will involve activating all twelve alarms situated at various locations in and around the Grangemouth Industrial Complex. Grangemouth residents and visitors will not be required to take any action when the system is activated at that time. In the unlikely event of an actual emergency taking place during the test, the transmission via the Community Warning System will clearly indicate such an event and the public should “Go in, Stay in and Tune in”. MICC chairman, Derek Brown said: ‘ This year we are celebrating 50 years of our unique Major Incident preparedness partnership. The testing of the Community Warning System is one aspect of our commitment to public safety on how MICC would alert the public in the unlikely event of a major incident at one of the operator’s facilities with the Grangemouth Industrial Complex. “Throughout the year, industrial companies in Grangemouth also work with the emergency services and Falkirk Council to train and exercise our staff to ensure we are fully equipped to deal with a wide range of different scenarios. “We encourage everyone in the Grangemouth community to ensure that they know what to do should an emergency happen.” For more information, please visit the MICC webpage, miccgrangemouth.co.uk or Falkirk Council webpage www.falkirk.gov.uk MICC is comprised of representatives from Falkirk Council, Emergency Services and the operators of the various chemical manufacturing sites in Grangemouth
