November Emergency Preparedness – Shelter in Place

 

Shelter in PlaceYour house provides a good first-layer barrier against airborne chemical agents.  Additional protection is achieved by tightly sealing one room of your home that you have pre-designated and prepared.

  • Designate a “safe’ room, one that can be easily and quickly sealed using plastic sheeting and duct tape.
  • Cut pieces to fits windows, vents, doors; store in in a bin with other supplies: blankets, water, snacks, batter-operated radio, etc.
