We'll be conducting a routine test of the warning siren at our Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) site in Blochairn Road, Provan, on Wednesday 28 October 2020.

The siren is used to warn people living or working near the site of any potential incidents. It will be tested on Wednesday 28 October from 10am. The test will last for a maximum duration of one hour, during which both ‘warning’ and ‘all-clear’ sirens will sound several times.

We conduct tests every six months at all our LPG sites, always notifying residents and businesses by letter beforehand. This test is a requirement as part of the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations 2015.

Waseem Hanif, spokesperson for SGN, said: “We carry out these tests every six months because the safety of the local community is really important to us. While the test scheduled at 10am on Wednesday 28 October is routine and nothing to be concerned about, it’s important nearby residents and businesses are familiar with the sound of the siren and know what they need to do in case a real incident ever takes place.”
