    Nothing really. They aren't that bad, they're kinda fun too.

    Unless it's really a very very strong one, then I'd go turn off the gas =]

    I'd probably be extremely worried, given the biological, chemical and radiological agents in the labs surrounding me, not to mention the massive solvent and fuel bulking tanks on site, and the radioactive waste stores :p:

    I would imagine we'd all evacuate to a safe distance and enact some emergency plans.

    If it was a serious one (which we don't get in the UK but whatever..) I'd go into my garden.... Not sure why others haven't said this; you're much safer in an open outside area where nothing is going to fall on you and kill you.
