Staying Safe Around Buildings Damaged After a Disaster

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Script

This is an important message from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. After a hurricane, stay away from damaged buildings until building inspectors say it’s safe to enter. When it is safe, enter during the daytime only so you can see hazards. Wear protective clothing during cleanup, and avoid wading in water to reduce injuries. Leave immediately if you hear unusual noises. Remember: pace yourself during cleanup. To learn more, call the CDC at 800-CDC-INFO.
