How can I prevent nerve gas poisoning?

You may not be able to prevent nerve gas poisoning, but in the unlikely event that you are exposed to toxic levels of nerve gas, there are several ways to lessen the effects. If you are outside at the time of exposure, go indoors, seal all entrances and exits, and turn off the air conditioner. Go to the highest floor of your building and close the doors and windows. You should remove your clothing and place it in a sealed container, and wash your body with soap and lots of water from head to toe. Do not scrub your skin because you could make tiny cuts that may absorb the nerve gas.
