Evacuation & Shelter-in-Place

Evacuation is one of the basic instructions you may receive from officials when your area is seriously threatened in an emergency.

When that happens, you need to leave the area quickly and safely.

How To Evacuate 

Special Needs 

For those with special needs, additional planning and practice is vital to being prepared in case of an evacuation. Remember, navigating stairs in a building with elevators that may not be operational will be difficult. Develop a “buddy system” for persons with special needs. 

Shelter-In-Place 

“Shelter-in-place” is one of the basic instructions you may receive from officials if there is a chemical emergency in your area. It provides a barrier between you and the dangerous chemicals in the outside air.
