Shelters & Sheltering-in-Place


In some instances, you may be asked to take shelter in your home. 

  • Remain calm.  Panic is your greatest enemy.
  • Listen closely to a local EAS radio station for instructions.
  • If you can do so safely, close all windows, doors & vents.  Turn off all fans, air conditioners or other building systems that draw in outside air.
  • Do NOT evacuate unless instructed to do so.
  • Children in schools will be cared for through the schools' emergency procedures.  Do NOT attempt to pick them up unless advised to do so. 
  • If you are in a building that has a basement, go downstairs.  Take a battery-operated radio with you. 
  • Stay indoors until advised that it is safe to go outside.
  • If you must go outside, cover your nose and mouth with a handkerchief or mask.  Move quickly and limit outdoor exposure time to as little as possible.
