The chemical accident drill in Tarragona on November 2 will confine 65,000 people
The chemical accident drill prepared by Civil Protection for November 2 will affect 65,000 people in Camp de Tarragona. It will be the drill with the largest population that has ever been done in Catalonia and inhabitants of Tarragona, La Canonja, Vila-seca, Salou and Reus are called to participate.
The hypothesis of the incident will be a chlorine leak in a company in the southern petrochemical estate, which would have a range of three kilometers. The test will start at six in the evening, and at half past six the chemical hazard sirens will sound.
The exercise will debut the mobile phone alert system, which will receive a message and emit an audible signal to warn the user. Looking ahead to 2023, another drill will be carried out, in this case in the north polygon.
