  • Once indoors, close all windows and exterior doors and shut down air conditioning or heating systems to prevent circulation of air.
  • Cover your mouth and nose. If gas masks are not available, use a surgical mask or a handkerchief.
  • Cover bare arms and legs and make sure any cuts or abrasions are covered or bandaged.
