What would be the first–aid treatment should radiation exposure actually take place?
People threatened with radiation exposure should evacuate the area in a quick, orderly manner. Local authorities will give specific instructions on how best to do it. People already exposed should remove and discard all clothing that was worn at the time of the exposure and should wash their bodies thoroughly for a prolonged period of time in a shower. Medical advice should be sought promptly. Evacuation and admission to a hospital out of the area of radiation may be advised.
