Hopefully, here’s more than you’ll ever need to know about surviving a nuclear detonation and the resulting radioactive fallout:
- If you see an extremely bright light,
run to the window to lookduck and cover until the heat and blast waves pass.
- Shelter-in-place, deep within the nearest, thickest building for protection from radiation. (Cars do not provide adequate protection from radiation.)
- 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.
- If your clothes are contaminated, seal them in a plastic bag, place this bag away from people, and take a very thorough, soapy shower.
