Tips on Cleaning Up Safely After a Disaster

Entering a damaged building safely is critical. You should always wait to reenter such a building until after it has been inspected by a qualified professional. If you hear strange noises or smell an unusual odor (such as gas), leave the structure immediately and contact emergency personnel. Be sure to have at least two fire extinguishers available for cleanup jobs. Everyone cleaning a damaged structure should wear safety gear, such as safety goggles and hard hats.
