HERMANUS – A new bulk Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) depot, the Gas Hub, will soon open in the Hermanus Business Park. As part of safety regulations, a siren test will be conducted on Friday, April 5, 2024, between 12:00 and 13:00.

The siren, which will be very loud, is expected to be audible within a 5km radius of the facility on Argon Road, Sandbaai. The test will last for approximately one minute. Residents are urged not to be alarmed by the noise.

Overstrand Fire & Rescue, in collaboration with the Gas Hub, will be conducting evacuation drills soon. These exercises are designed to ensure preparedness for both the facility and emergency services in case of an incident.
