Citizen Emergency

What to do in the event of an explosion.

Emergency Procedure

  1. Get under a sturdy table or desk if things are falling around you.  When they stop falling, leave quickly, watching for obviously weakened floors and stairways.  As you exit from the building, be especially watchful of falling debris.
  2. Leave the building as quickly as possible.  Do not stop to retrieve personal possessions or make phone calls.
  3. Do not use elevators.
  4. Do not stand in front of windows, glass doors, or other potentially hazardous areas.
  5. Move away from sidewalks or streets to be used by emergency officials or others still exiting the building.
