Accidents involving hazardous materials

General advice

Hazardous chemicals may be accidentally spilled during manufacture, storage or transportation. Here are some tips to follow in case of a chemical spill.

Inside your home or the building you are in:

  • Open doors and windows (if possible) to ventilate the premises.
  • Avoid igniting any flame or any electrical appliance.
  • Evacuate immediately and notify emergency services from a neighbour’s telephone.

Outside your home or the building you are in:

  • Avoid starting your car.
  • Avoid igniting any flames.
  • Alert emergency services.
  • Follow the instructions of the authorities.

Depending on the magnitude of the situation, the Ville may ask you to EVACUATE your residence as soon as possible. In that case:

  • Close doors and windows.
  • Close any system with an outside air intake (air exchanger, heat pump, fireplace flue damper, etc.).
  • Leave with your emergency kit.
  • Follow the instructions of the authorities.

Depending on the situation, the Ville may ask you TO STAY CONFINED in your home, in that case:

  • Close doors and windows.
  • Close any system with an outside air intake (air exchanger, heat pump, fireplace flue dampers, etc.).
  • Seal gaps with towels, damp sheets, plastic wrap, etc., and duct tape to prevent contaminants from entering the house.
  • Immediately close any rooms you are not using.
  • Follow the instructions of the authorities.
