Toxic Chemical or Radiation Release
If you live near to a large industrial site you will be told if there are special emergency arrangements for your area. The following advice also applies in the event of a major transport incident e.g a tanker spillage.
When warned of an incident you should:
Bring all pet inside
Close all window and air vents
Switch off air conditioning or ventilation
Extinguish naked flames
Do not go outside unless told to do so by Emergency Services
Do not collect children from school until told to do so - they will be taken care of
