A Clear, Concise HazMat Message

This message includes the contents that motivate people to act and does so in a clear and concise manner. It provides information about the threat and its location; identifies the specific areas that are at risk and instructs them when and how to shelter in their homes. It also explains how to find additional information about the event.

A few things could be added for improvement, including the SOURCE of the message, specific TIMING, and an indication of the potential IMPACTS from the chemical leak, such as respiratory or skin related hazards. However, we find that this message offers a lot of detail in a short space and is exemplary for clearly communicating protective action guidance.

Well done!
