Shelter in Place

If you are instructed to shelter in place, this means that you should remain in your home or office and protect yourself there. Close and lock all windows, doors, and fireplace dampers. Choose an above-ground interior room and gather your supplies. Once in the room seal the cracks around the doors, windows, and any vents to the room with plastic and/or duct tape. Listen to your radio or television and read updates online until you are told all is safe or to evacuate.
