Terms to know
Evacuate: Move out of an unsafe location into safety. Walk quickly in an orderly fashion to the nearest safe exit.
Shelter-in-Place: Seek immediate shelter and remain there during an emergency rather than evacuate the area. Lock the door and barricade yourself in the room with the furniture or anything you can push against the door. The preferred Shelter-in-Place location would be an interior room or hallway.
Seek Shelter: If outside during an incident, drop to the ground immediately, lying face down as flat as possible. If within 15-20 feet of a safe place or cover, stay close to the ground and run to it.
