Take Shelter

Taking appropriate shelter is critical for protection in times of disaster. When conditions require it, you may need to seek shelter in your home, workplace or school. Sheltering outside the hazard area could include staying with friends or relatives or at a mass care facility operated by disaster relief groups. 

The safest location to seek shelter varies by hazard. For example, select a room in a basement or an interior room on the lowest level away from windows and outside walls if a tornado strikes. 

Depending on the type of disaster, there may be times when it is best to “shelter in place” to avoid uncertainty outdoors. Some guidelines for sheltering in place include: 

  • Bring your family and pets inside immediately;
  • Get your emergency supply kit;
  • Lock doors, close windows, air vents and fireplace dampers; and
  • Go to an interior room with few or no windows.

If the need arises, you could be asked to create a barrier of protection between yourself and potentially contaminated air outside. Learn the steps required to “seal the room.” It could be a matter of survival!
