How Do You Make A Safe Room For A Chemical Attack?
Safe rooms are built to protect you in the case of a chemical, biological or nuclear attack. A safe room is a secure room or location on your property that prevents dangerous substances from entering the room. Its intended purpose is mitigating the effects of deadly chemicals. You can build a safe room within your own home. Pick a room in the interior of your home, preferably on an upper floor, to convert to your safe room. Chemicals are heavier than air and will sink, so you’ll be safer on a higher floor. Your safe room should have as few windows as possible to minimize entry points for dangerous chemicals. Attach a HEPA filter to all ventilation ducts in the room to help filter and clean the air in the case of an air-based chemical attack. Stock the room with at least 72 hours worth of fresh water, non-perishable food items, duct tape, breathing filters rated N95 or better for each family member, pet food if needed, clear plastic film, a working phone and scissors. Seal any windows w
