We are required to provide our Public Information Zone (PIZ) with details of what actions they should take in the unlikely event of an incident which could affect anyone outside of our site.
Advice from the Emergency Services suggests that if the siren sounds – other than a test (details below*) – it is best to: GO INSIDE, STAY IN AND TUNE IN.
Go inside: Switch off all sources of ignition, including gas and electrical heating appliances. Block incoming draughts. Do not light matches, and put out naked flames. Do not smoke. Go into a room facing away from our site and close the curtains. Please avoid using your phone to contact Dragon – this will help us keep our lines free for emergency use.
Stay in: Wait inside until the all clear has been given by the Emergency Services, who may instruct us to use our Dragon LNG all clear siren, or advise you by another means.
Tune into: Radio Pembrokeshire (102.5FM) or BBC Radio Wales (93-96 and 104FM) to listen to instructions from the Emergency Services who will be working with local/national radio to broadcast key information.

In the extremely unlikely event of an incident that might have off site implications, our off site (COMAH) siren will sound. This siren is designed to be heard in our Public Information Zone, as described above.
The off site (COMAH) siren has a distinctive sound, with the tone alternatively rising and lowering in pitch. Our all-clear siren has a single continuous tone.
To hear a recording of our emergency instructions and the off site (COMAH) siren, please call freephone 0800 0468113*.
*Calls to this number from any UK Landline will be free. Please check with your mobile network provider if calling from a mobile phone.
