 WHAT IS A DIRTY BOMB?

A dirty bomb or radiological dispersal device “RDD” combines a conventional explosive such as dynamite with a radioactive material. If one explodes near you, take the following steps:

  • Move at least several blocks from the explosion and get indoors, this will reduce exposure to any airborne radioactive dust.
  • Check local radio or television stations for advisories from emergency response and health authorities.
  • Remove your clothes and place them in a sealed plastic bag, your contaminated clothing can be tested for radiation contamination
  • Take shower to wash off dust and dirt. This will reduce total radiation exposure, if the explosive device contained radioactive materials
  • If radioactive material was released, NNRA will advice you where to report for radiation monitoring and test to determine where you were exposed and what steps to take to protect your health.
