Go into a bomb shelter or safe room (if one is not available in your building, enter the innermost room of your house), closing the doors and windows. Those living in the top floor of apartment buildings should quickly exit their apartments and enter the stairwell, descending to the middle floor of the building.
Enter the nearest building immediately. If there are no buildings close by, or you are in an open area, lie down on the ground and cover your head with your hands.
In the car:
Stop on the side of the road, exit the car, and enter a building or protected area immediately. If there is no building, or you are in an open area, exit the car and lie down on the ground, covering your head with your hands. If you cannot exit the vehicle, top on the side of the road and wait 10 minutes before continuing on your journey.
If no other instructions are given, you may leave the secure area after 10 minutes.
Homefront Command also issued specific instructions for workers in a variety of situations and job types, including government and essential workers.
