Protect yourself from volcanic ash indoors

by Apr 12, 2022

Prevent ashes from entering and accumulating inside your home

? Close all openings in your home

⚠️ Caulk vents with plastic sheeting or a cloth

1️⃣ Use only one entrance to come and go.

? ? Keep pets indoors; if they must go outside, brush them when they return, before they come back inside

?? Don’t use fans, air conditioners or hairdryers

?️ If the temperature starts to get too high inside your home, consider moving temporarily to a safer location

? To clean up ashes, use a damp cloth and wear a face mask

⚠️ Dry brushing can significantly increase exposure levels and should be avoided
