Yourtown, America – If you’re wondering what to do immediately after receiving a Presidential Alert on your smartphone from the National Wireless Emergency Alert System, simply follow these simple steps which were prepared by FEMA:
Do not panic!
Locate your Presidential Alert gas mask.
Quickly put on your Presidential Alert gas mask according to the 8-page FEMA instruction pamphlet.
If you don’t have a gas mask, either borrow one from someone who does, or jimmy-rig one out of a clean dish towel.
Assist others around you to put on their Presidential Alert gas masks.
If outdoors, get inside a sturdy building as quickly as possible.
Go to the lowest area of a building, preferably one without any windows or doors.
Lay down on the floor in the fetal position while monitoring your smartphone.
If possible, pull any available blankets or tables over you for additional protection.
Remain calm and in place for 30-45 minutes while breathing normally.
Then, if all is well, resume normal activities.
