Here are some simple tips to help keep you protected.
If the radioactive contamination message caught you on the street:
- Get to the nearest building immediately. The best place to go is a shelter or basement. Cover your nose and mouth with a towel, handkerchief, or medical mask to protect your respiratory system.
In case the message about the radioactive contamination has caught you at home:
- Close all windows, doors, and vents. Only approach them if you have to. Do not go outside. Turn off air conditioners and heaters. Wear a mask or cotton bandage to protect your respiratory system.
Important! Remember the messages of national emergency services, police, and local authorities. Follow their instructions and recommendations without fail.
