Not quite. By the time you see cherinkov radiation you've already had it. You might as well stick around and try to shut the reaction down to save other people.

Not quite. I have seen Chenrenkov radiation and am alive and well. There was about 3 meters of water between me and the reaction. The reaction took place in a (low power) research reactor in an open vat of water. You could look from above down into the reactor and see the Cherenkov radiation. The radiation levels where I was standing were normal.
