The Department of Emergency Management of the City of New Yorklaunched a guide to prevent and advise the citizens of the Big Apple, in case there is a nuclear explotion.
As explained in a statement by the New York City Emergency Management Commissioner, Zach Iscol:
New York City Emergency Management has a multitude of free resources for New Yorkers to prepare for emergencies, including unannounced events. As the threat landscape continues to evolve, it’s important for New Yorkers to know that we’re preparing for any imminent threats and providing them with the resources they need to stay safe and informed.
For that they prepared a video with three essential tips:
- We must quickly go to a building and stay away from windows, adding that staying in a vehicle should not be an option.
- Once inside, we must not leave the building, close all doors and windows and, if by chance we have a basement, go to it. If not, “get as close to the center of the building as possible. If you were outside after the explosion, go immediately, “they expose in the video. It also details that we must store all outer clothing in a bag to keep radioactive material away from anyone nearby.
- The last and third step states that we keep ourselves informed by whatever means we can to obtain information on the evolution of what has happened.
