Not the police siren, that's built into the MT-32 soundtrack alone. Everything else is sound files, yes.

You leave me no choice :P

Here is how the intro video looks on my machine - ignore the crappy framerate (first time I tried recording). I use the intro music files from Cydonia's Fall, and the intro sound effect file (SAMPLE3.CAT) from the Original UFO: Enemy Unknown 1.0/1.2 DOS Sound Effect Set from fenyo's website.

Yup, no police siren. It's in the beginning with the searchlights.

Yes the game has different soundtracks for General MIDI (the version used by OpenXcom and fenyo's versions), Adlib/Soundblaster and Roland MT-32 but unless you can find emulators for those, your best bet is to just record it off of DOSBox or something (like volutar did for the Adlib version). Rolands are hard to come by these days. :P

Oh, my bad, I thought this was about the XCom siren/screams/other sounds which are absent from the gold edition. After more thorough listening the police siren and the thud just before the XCom siren are the obvious differences.
