Community Safety in Pennington County


Depending on the exact situation, everyone within a specific distance of a chemical or hazardous spill incident may be ordered to shelter in place or people within a closer range may be ordered to evacuate while everyone else shelters in place. Sheltering in place is generally only used for a short period of time and is one of the actions that may be recommended following a siren activation.
