Decontamination

If you were outside, a few simple measures are enough to decrease the external contamination with radioactive particles:

  • Undress and put your clothes in a plastic bag (put the bag outside)
  • Take a shower and wash yourself with soap
  • Put on clean clothes
  • Drink enough

It is possible that the authorities set up a relief centre, where one can present oneself for decontamination and medical check-up.
