Explosions in Texas – What You Should Do

Explosions are almost always tragic developments, and the disaster many explosions leave in their wake often result in masses of confused, fearful and emotionally paralyzed victims, and that only describes those who were not seriously injured by the blast or blasts. Given the horrible circumstances that surround these situations, the Texas explosion lawyers at Williams Hart would like to provide you with a basic list of suggestions of how to handle yourself and the situation if you find yourself in an explosion’s zone of danger.

Get Away

When an explosion occurs, your first instinct may be to run towards it in order to help those who may be trapped. However, the fact of the matter is that one explosion could very well lead to another, and the initial explosion could have released innumerable dangerous gases into the air that surrounds the incident. What this means is that the best way for you to help is to get away from the immediate danger and to help keep others around you calm.

Call Authorities

Even though explosions usually affect many people at once, you should not assume that the authorities have been alerted. Always make the call to 911 to alert professional rescue teams of the incident, as these professionals are equipped to handle call volume and will also be able to give you basic instructions regarding how to proceed until the authorities take control of the situation.

Contact Loved Ones

Get Professional Help
