The Newport Terminal alarms are a vital way of ensuring our on-site personnel respond quickly and safely to an incident. There are two types of alarms:
General Alarm – 30 seconds of an alternating pitch of the alarm. In the event of an incident, the general alarm will sound for at least one minute or more.
All clear – 30 seconds of continuous sounding of the siren. This signifies if there is an incident, it is now under control.
The alarms are tested at 1.30pm every Thursday.
An alarm heard any other time means an incident has occurred on site that requires attention by terminal personnel.
The community does not need to take action when an alarm sounds unless instructed otherwise by the Police or Emergency Services.
