  • Be wary of fires and other hazards
  • Exit the building
  • Once you are out - do not stand in front of windows, glass doors, gas station
  • Stay away – Keep at least a 15 meters distance from the event location, allowing rescuers to do their job, unless you are requested otherwise.
  • Keep pathways clear - for emergency vehicles.
  • In case of fire – do not use elevators.

  • Call emergency – Call 112 and describe the event as well as its location.
  • Do not go back
  • Do not smoke - There might be gas leakage and a fire might ignite.
If trapped following the explosion:
  • Avoid unnecessary movement, in order not to pick up dust.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with anything you have on hand (as long as you can still breathe). Dense-weave cotton material can create a good filter.

  • Signal your location:
  1. Tap on a pipe or wall so that rescuers can hear where you are.
  2. Use a whistle or a flashlight.
  3. Shout only as a last resort. Shouting can cause a person to inhale dangerous amounts of dust.
Tips to know prior to the explosion:
  •  It may be easier to make a long-distance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members.
  • Learn how to use an extinguisher prior to the event.
