Chemicals play important roles in our everyday lives. They can be found in household and commercial products that are lifesaving as well as hazardous. Chemical accidents do happen, sometimes threatening human health and the environment. We must also confront the threat of chemicals being used as terrorist weapons.
You can prepare for chemical emergencies by learning about the risks from common chemicals and planning for actions to keep your household safe. You can also prepare for what to do during a major chemical emergency to protect your family.
