Toxic chemical releases and how to protect yourself

​​​​Chemical incidents that are considered an emergency in Jersey include a toxic chemical release and major land, air, or water contamination. If you are informed that there is a cloud of hazardous material in your area, take the following steps to protect yourself and your family.
  • go indoors, stay there and tune into local radio and television for further information
  • close all doors and windows, shut down all ventilation and air conditioning systems and block obvious draughts (unblock these vents before switching everything back on)
  • extinguish all flames, for example, pilot lights
  • get out your home emergency pack
  • cover or put all food in a closed, sealed cupboard or container
  • wash and / or peel all fruit and vegetables before eating
  • do not try to collect your children from school unless told to do so. They will be looked after properly by the school
  • do not go outside until you are told to do so (even if everything appears normal)
  • do not use rainwater; for example, water butts should be discarded
  • keep animals inside and do not stroke or pat any animals that have been outside
  • listen for public announcements: they will inform you when it is safe to go outside, and of other actions you should take
