What to do during a nuclear power plant emergency
The following are guidelines for what you should do if a nuclear power plant emergency occurs. Keep a battery-powered radio with you at all times and listen to the radio for specific instructions. Close and lock doors and windows.
If you are told to evacuate:
•Keep car windows and vents closed; use recirculating air.
If you are advised to remain indoors:
•Turn off the air conditioner, ventilation fans, furnace, and other air intakes.
•Go to a basement or other underground area, if possible.
•Do not use the telephone unless absolutely necessary.
If you expect you have been exposed to nuclear radiation:
•Change clothes and shoes.
•Put exposed clothing in a plastic bag.
•Seal the bag and place it out of the way.
•Take a thorough shower.
•Keep food in covered containers or in the refrigerator. Food not previously covered should be washed before being put into containers.
