Where to go in a radiation emergency
Corporate Authors:Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)\
Description:If a radiation emergency happens in your area, you should get inside immediately.
No matter where you are, the safest action to take is to: GET INSIDE. STAY INSIDE. STAY TUNED.
• Close and lock all windows and doors.
• Go to the basement or the middle of the building. Radioactive material settles on the outside of buildings;
so the best thing to do is stay as far away from the walls and roof of the building as you can.
• If possible, turn off fans, air conditioners, and forced-air heating units that bring air in
from the outside. Close fireplace dampers.
• Bring pets inside.
• Stay tuned for updated instructions from emergency response officials.
