• The extent of poisoning caused by riot control agents depends on the amount of riot control agent to which a person was exposed, the location of exposure (indoors versus outdoors), how the person was exposed, and the length of time of the exposure. (cdc.gov)
  • Riot control agents work by causing irritation to the area of contact (for example, eyes, skin, nose) within seconds of exposure. (cdc.gov)
