This past week, in the Industrial Park (where All Safe Industries is located), a "Shelter-In-Place" was put into effect for those businesses within a one mile radius of a hydrogen fluoride spill. For many people this was the first time they had been involved in a "shelter-in-place" incident. We're going to explain what a "shelter-in-place" means and how you can stay safe during emergencies such as the chemical spill our local businesses faced.

What Shelter-in-Place Means:
Here is how the American Red Cross describes Shelter-in-Place: "One of the instructions you may be given in an emergency where hazardous materials may have been released into the atmosphere is to shelter-in-place. This is a precaution aimed to keep you safe while remaining indoors. (This is not the same thing as going to a shelter in case of a storm.) Shelter-in-place means selecting a small, interior room, with no or few windows, and taking refuge there. It does not mean sealing off your entire home or office building.
It is important to note that there will not be a shelter setup or put in place but instead the preexisting shelter of the building or home that you are in is used.
