Hazardous Materials Incident

  • If a hazardous material release poses a danger to building occupants, notify others to leave immediately. Activate the building fire alarm as you evacuate.
  • Do NOT attempt to clean up extremely hazardous materials or materials of unknown hazard.
  • If you come into contact with hazardous materials, rinse the contaminated area with copious amounts of water. Do not rub the substance if it is on your skin. Seek medical attention.
  • Notify emergency personnel if you have been exposed to a hazardous material or have information about the release.
  • If directed to SHELTER-IN-PLACE, stay where you are. Close all doors and windows. If possible, try to create a tight seal around door jambs and ventilation ducts.
