“Duck and Cover, Shelter-In-Place” April 29, 2013

Hopefully, here’s more than you’ll ever need to know about surviving a nuclear detonation and the resulting radioactive fallout:

  1. If you see an extremely bright light, run to the window to look duck and cover until the heat and blast waves pass.
  2. Shelter-in-place, deep within the nearest, thickest building for protection from radiation. (Cars do not provide adequate protection from radiation.)
  3. If possible, seal your doors and shattered windows with plastic and duct tape, and stay inside for a couple of days while the radiation dissipates.
  4. If your clothes are contaminated, seal them in a plastic bag, place this bag away from people, and take a very thorough, soapy shower.

The government’s response plan.
