(This is about suspicious packages)
If a person does receive a suspicious package that may contain chemical or biological substances the State Department of Health and SEMA suggest:
Do not open suspicious packages.
If the package has been opened but is not leaking, place it in a sealed container.
If there is leakage, cover the package and stay in the room to prevent spreading the substance.
Wash hands well with soap and water.
Contact local law enforcement and follow their instructions.
Testing of exposed persons is not needed. The suspicious substance will be tested, if necessary, to determine if treatment will be needed.
Anyone who makes an anthrax threat violates state and federal law. Wilson and Raiston said the threat of bioterrorism is a serious offense and will be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted.
