Indoor Protection


You may be told to close air circulation systems. If so, here's what you should do:

  • Close all doors and windows;
  • Turn off your air conditioner or furnace. You may be told to extinguish the pilot light on your water heater and gas stove. Pilot lights can ignite flammable gasses. Find out where and how to turn off these pilot lights and show all members of your family;
  • Turn off your clothes dryer.
  • Turn off all bathroom and kitchen ventilation fans;
  • If you have a fireplace, close the damper.

If you are told to block your doors and windows, place wet towels, sheets, or other large items at the bottoms of outside doors and windows. Continue listening to the radio or TV broadcasts for further information.
