In An Emergency...
Be aware of your surroundings.
Being aware of where you are and what is happening around you can help you to understand how information, events, and your own actions will impact your safety and your ability to protect yourself, both now and in the near future.
Based on your assessment of the situation, use your best judgment to protect yourself and, if possible without putting yourself in danger, others.
Once you are safely away from danger, warn others of the hazard and help if you can without putting yourself at risk of danger.
Call for help.
Any emergency service can be summoned by calling 911.
