What does Shelter in Place Mean?

Shelter in Place means to stay in your home and not leave in the event of a chemical spill, storm or other unusual event.

Make prior arrangements to collect the supplies you may need.  In the event, grab your shelter - in - place kit and go to the previously chosen room of your home. You will want to go to a room with few windows and as high in the home as possible (do not go to the basement if a chemical spill. Chemicals settle low to the ground).  You will want to seal all windows, doors, electrical outlets and vents. 

Take a look at the video below for more information.

Look for the steps in all the videos for better understanding.

Be sure to make a Shelter-in-Place Kit that will be ready in a moment's notice.
