Create a barrier between yourself and potentially contaminated air outside. If you see large amounts of debris in the air, or if local authorities say the air is badly contaminated, you may also want to “seal the room.”
Bring your family and pets inside, lock doors, close windows, air vents and fireplace
TURN IT OFF
Turn off fans, air conditioning and forced-air heating systems.
Keep your Emergency Supply Kit in an interior room with few windows.
Watch TV, listen to the radio or check the internet often for official news and instructions as they become available.
When you need to evacuate your home in an emergency, plan how you will assemble your family and anticipate where you will go. Choose several destinations in different directions so you have options.
Plan places to meet within and outside of your immediate neighborhood.
Take your pets with you, but understand that some public shelters only permit service animals.
Keep a half tank of gas in your car at all times in case you need to evacuate. If you don’t have a car, plan other means of transportation.
Take your Emergency Supply Kit with you.
