BRIEF: Sirens in Lima no cause for concern
LIMA, Jan 28, 2013 (The Lima News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Emergency sirens blared at the Lima INEOS plant for about an hour Monday morning, but a company spokeswoman said it was no cause for alarm.
INEOS Human Resources Manager Sally Duval said there wasn't an incident that occurred.
"Here at Lima Chemicals, we are doing new construction and we have built a new control room," she said. "We have an alarm button, that if you're in a control room and there's an issue, you're able to push the button and it starts the sirens. We were doing an electrical cutover from moving the button to the new control room and there was a short."
The emergency sirens are a precautionary measure for residents in the area, but Duval said they're rarely used. A notification alarm is tested every Monday at noon.
Lima Police Department and the Allen County Sheriff's Office dealt with numerous phone calls from residents that morning.
The INEOS plant, located at 1900 Fort Amanda Road, produces nitrile-based products.
