How do you cleanup the enviorment
If the air is foggy to desolve it you can spray it with water but if the chlorine has spread alot then it will be hard to get rid of so the area has to be evacuated becuase chlorine is a gas so it can cuase damage in the resperatory system. so when everyone has evacuated the workers will come to contain the chlorine.
