Emergency alarms are meant to shock you into attention, but if you hear one coming from the south of Malta this Tuesday morning, then there’s really no need to panic.
Enemalta have announced that, on the 4th of September, they’ll be testing the emergency alarms at the Delimara Power Station at 9am. Even though the alarms will last for less than a minute and are part of an annual procedure to check and confirm that the site is prepared for any sort of emergency at the plant or surrounding installations, a warning like this is of course still necessary.
“The Company invests in this ongoing process to safeguard the health and safety of neighbouring residents and workers,” Enemalta explained. “This is also done to minimise the risk of environmental impacts and to ensure the security of the country’s electricity generation and distribution infrastructure.”
So there you have it ladies and gentlemen; if you hear bellowing sounds coming from Delimara this Tuesday, don’t worry – it’s not the end of the world just yet.
