  • Do as you’re told: evacuate or shelter-in-place.
  • Sheltering in place is more than just closing the window. Prepare ahead of time, especially if you live near the freeways, railroad tracks, the industrial area in northwest Buena Park, or a business that stores a large amount of chemicals (such as a propane or pool-supply store).
