Surviving in a world gone MAD. From a Limited Nuclear Strike to Full Nuclear War: Steps to Take to Survive
Every week there seems to be a stream of news, alarms, confrontations and events that send war jitters around the world.
Seek shelter immediately. In the 1960’s and Cold War period Civil Defense used to mark buildings as fallout shelters and stock them with supplies. This is not a reality today. City buildings made of stone or solid materials with minimal windows are the safest.Cover yourself the best you can to protect head and exposed areas, Keep your eyes shielded and cover your nose and mouth to avoid intake of debris.
Follow instructions that come from first responders and emergency services.
Remain in the shelter until an all clear is sounded.
If you are able to return home remove and discard outer clothing and wash thoroughly. Be ready to shelter and endure for up to two weeks.
Sheltering in place. What to do when the alert comes and you are at home. If you are at home take immediate shelter in the basement or at least away from windows.
Keep a radio or phone charged for instructions. States operate emergency centers under FEMA and DHS as well and will issue directions and information that relate to your location. Set your phone to receive emergency notifications as well.
Take your emergency supplies for a nuclear war to your basement and cover any windows. Run up water in bathtubs, sinks and any storage containers. Be ready to ration any food supplies until it is safe to venture outside.
Know your weather patterns for wind currents; radiation exposure will depend on these currents.
Most Are Blind To The Threat Of Nukes — Don’t Be
Those who grew up in the 1950’s through 1980’s are familiar with the fear caused by the threat of nuclear attack and war. Today, many of the resources we had are outdated or just don’t work. Recent performances by FEMA during weather emergencies such as the hurricanes in Texas and Puerto Rico, the horrific wildfires in California only confirm the inability of the Government to protect or help the country survive or recover from a nuclear attack. It is up to you to be aware and be prepared.Most people today just don’t think a nuclear war could ever happen. But with the ambitions of North Korea and Iran and the outspoken threats toward the U.S. and allies, unfortunately the threat of a nuclear attack continues into the modern age.
Prepare today to survive tomorrow.
