Shelter-In-Place

In some emergency situations staying put is the best option. Sheltering-in-place means to take temporary protection in a structure or vehicle—typically your workplace or residence. Remember, preparing your residence is
your own responsibility.

Shelter “Up” – When there is fl ooding, the safest place in the house is upper floors.

Shelter “In” – There are other circumstances when you should create a barrier between yourself and potentially contaminated air outside.
• Know how to turn off your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
• Bring everyone safely inside to an interior room or one with as few windows and doors as possible.
• Close and secure all doors, windows, vents and other exterior openings.

Shelter “Down” – In case of tornados or high winds, the safest place is in the basement or an interior room with few windows
and doors.

When directed by the Secretary of Defense, all Army-affi liated people in the disaster-aff ected area must check in with their command using the Army Disaster Personnel Accountability and Assessment System (ADPAAS) at https://adpaas.army.mil or an established call center.
