Choosing and Preparing the Secure Space

Choosing a secure space is based on the amount of time available to enter from the moment the alarm sounds or an explosion is heard, according to the following order of priority:
1. Mamad (Apartment Secure Space, found within an apartment) or Mamak (Level Secure Space, found on each floor of a building) are the preferred types of secure space.
2. Shelter
   a. Apartment Shelter – Given  that the shelter is inside the building and can be reached by means of an interior staircase, without dependence on the length of the warning time.
   b. Public Shelter – Given that the shelter can be reached in the time allotted, from  moment the alarm sounds.
3. Interior Stairwell
   a. Tenants of top-floor apartments in buildings over three stories high who do not have an interior Mamad, Mamak, or shelter should go down two stories and remain in the stairwell. In buildings with more than three floors the most secure space is in the stairwell between any two floors, except for the space between the ground floor and the first floor and between the roof and the top two floors.
   b. Tenants of top-floor apartments in buildings three stories high who do not have an interior Mamad, Mamak, or shelter should go down one story and remain in the stairwell. In three-storey buildings the most secure space is in the stairwell at the second floor level.

● In emergencies, leave the entrance door open for people outdoors to enter.
● DO NOT choose the shower or restroom (W.C.) as a secure space. Distance yourself from ceramics, porcelain, and glass that might shatter.
● Residents are not permitted to remain in the entrance lobbies of the buildings because of the danger of flying glass slivers and shock waves from missiles that land close to the building.

❏ Ensure that the size of the room and sitting/reclining area is suitable to the number of people that will need to enter in case of emergency.
❏ Remove heavy and fragile objects (porcelain and glass, electrical devices, photographs and mirrors, flowerpots, etc.) from walls and shelves.
❏ Close all windows or shutters.
❏ Clear the path to the secure space.
❏ Equip the secure space with the necessary emergency equipment.

❏ Communication devices to stay updated (computer, television, radio on batteries).
❏ Cellular phone, backup batteries and mobile charger.
❏ Three liters of closed water bottles per person per day. It is recommended to prepare water supply for three days.
❏ Food in closed packages, such as canned food and snacks.
❏ Emergency light (led), flashlight, and batteries.
❏ First aid kit and necessary medicines.
❏ Fire extinguisher.
❏ Copies of important documents, medical documents, medical prescriptions, identification documents, personal documents and financial documents.
❏  A bag of personal belongings for a few days in case of evacuation.
❏ List of phone numbers of emergency organizations, family members and neighbors.
❏ Enjoyable things to pass the time such as games, newspapers, books.
❏ Additional equipment that is required specifically for your family
