Explosions Ready

 

Get Ready for Explosions, Fires and Debris

Explosions usually occur suddenly, so it’s important to learn in advance how to respond to an explosion and its aftermath.

If There is an Explosion:

    • Take shelter against your desk or a sturdy table.
    • Exit the building ASAP.
    • Do not use elevators.
    • Check for fire and other hazards.
    • Take your emergency supply kit if time allows.

If There is a Fire:

  • Exit the building ASAP.
  • Crawl low if there is smoke
  • Use a wet cloth, if possible, to cover your nose and mouth.
  • Use the back of your hand to feel the upper, lower, and middle parts of closed doors.
  • If the door is not hot, brace yourself against it and open slowly.
  • If the door is hot, do not open it. Look for another way out.
  • Do not use elevators.
  • If you catch fire, do not run. Stop-drop-and-roll to put out the fire.
  • If you are at home, go to a previously designated meeting place.
  • Account for your family members and carefully supervise small children.
  • Never go back into a burning building.

If You Are Trapped in Debris:

  • If possible, use a flashlight to signal your location to rescuers.
  • Avoid unnecessary movement so that you don’t kick up dust.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with anything you have on hand.
  • Tap on a pipe or wall so that rescuers can hear where you are.
  • If possible, use a whistle to signal rescuers.
  • Shout only as a last resort. Shouting can cause a person to inhale dangerous amounts of dust.
