1. Form a team of scientists and mathematicians. 
   Locate and map the underground accelerators, 
   injectors, reactors, walkways, and known escape routes.    
   (Include probable escape elevators and routes that may 
   have been partially constructed or unknown.) Don't forget 
   to seal the Control Room as soon as possible. Also Seal 
   the walk routes and escape elevators from the Control Room.

2. Seal the constructs completely, begining with those 
   located in populated areas.

3. Keep statistics. Plan a method of extinction. 

4. Why be shy, inform everyone of the danger and prepare for evacuation.
