  • 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.
