Tarragona hosts the largest drill for chemical risk carried out in Catalonia
Catalonia This Wednesday will launch the mobile alerts for civil protection emergencies with a chlorine leak drill in five municipalities of the southern area of Tarragona, in an area where they live 65,000 peoplewhich will be asked by sirens to rehearse a confinement due to chemical risk.
It will be the first time in Catalonia that the mobile phone warning system will be launched, in this case to the 65,000 geolocated people in the area affected by an emergency in the middle of the External Emergency Plan for the Tarragona Chemical Sector (Plaseqta)through a system managed by the central administration.
The sirens will sound at 6:30 p.m., when confinement will be requested in the Bonavista and Campclar neighborhoods of Tarragona, in the municipality of La Canonja and in areas of Vila-Seca and Salou, and in some areas of Reus, although in this case without affecting neighbors. Specifically, twenty sirens will sound, ten of them in Tarragona, two in La Canonja, six in Vilaseca and two in Salou.
The drill will simulate a chlorine leak in the Polígono Sur de Tarragona, in which confinement will be urged, since it is considered the safest way for this type of emergency in the chemical sector. Specifically, it is recommended that if you are on the street during the drill, you enter a store or premises and that those responsible for bars, stores or premises facilitate people to enter and then close the door and lower the blind.
If you are driving, it is recommended to roll up the windows, turn off the air conditioning and find a safe place to stand before entering a building, while if you are at home or at work, the best option is to stay inside, close the doors and windows and stop air conditioning. The drill is scheduled to end around 6:45 p.m., with the sound of the end-alert sirens.
Once the drill is over, the Minister of the Interior, Joan Ignacio Elena, will offer a press conference in the CAT112 building in Reus to assess this experience. In addition to Catalonia, the telephone alert system will also be tested today in Aragon, the Balearic Islands, Madrid, Murcia and Navarra and will continue throughout November in other regions.
