As much as possible, do not disturb the substance, but cover the substance and anything containing it with an empty wastebasket, box, or cloth if available.

  • Request anyone else in the area to move to a safe place, but to be available to speak with authorities when they arrive.
  • Secure all means of entrance and exit to the area to prevent others from coming in contact with the substance.
  • Immediately wash with soap and water any skin that touches a suspicious substance.
  • Isolate yourself from others to prevent the possible spread of contamination.
