Shelter In Place

If a toxic gas or airborne biological agent was released into your neighborhood, would you know what to do?

Shelter In Place is a safety procedure designed to help protect you and your family during a serious airborne hazardous material emergency. It means taking shelter inside your home, work place, school or other building until the danger has passed.

A shelter in place notification may be issued by local authorities during an emergency airborne event by television or radio, NOAA weather radio, outdoor warning sirens, door-to-door notification, public address systems on vehicles.
