What to Do: Stay Tuned
The best protection in a radiation emergency is to get inside, stay inside, and stay tuned.
Emergency response officials will be providing ongoing updates and life-saving information. Continue to check for updates and instructions from officials on available channels, such as television, radio, social media, and government webpages.
Use different methods to make sure you get the most recent official information. In a radiation emergency some communication methods may not be working.
Radiation levels will decrease with time as you are sheltering in place. Emergency response officials will provide instructions on how to evacuate your area when it is safe.
After evacuating the area, emergency response officials may instruct you to go to an emergency shelter and the safest route for travel.
Follow instructions of emergency response officials to help everyone stay safe. Do not go into the impacted area or stop sheltering in place to help others. There will be many ways people inside and outside of the impacted area can help.
