If not at home during chemical attack

What should I do if I'm not at home when a chemical attack occurs?

If you are indoors and the release is outdoors, shelter-in-place in your location until notified by authorities that it is safe to leave the building.

If you are indoors and the release is in your building - go outside if you can avoid passing through contaminated areas. Otherwise, go to your shelter-in-place location or move as far away from the contaminated area as possible.

As in all emergencies, follow instructions from local emergency officials to determine when it is safe to evacuate.
