WHAT YOU
SHOULD
KNOW
ABOUT
NUCLEAR
PREPAREDNESS
The
purpose
of
this
publication
is
to
answer
commonly
asked questions about nuclear
attack.
It
does not discuss various peacetimehazards.
If
you
want
that
information,
you
should ask your
local
or
state
emergency
services
(civil
defense)
office
for the
handbook
In
Time
of
Emergency
(H-14), published
by
the Federal
Emergency
Management
Agency.
If
not
available
locally,
H-14
may
also
be
obtained
by
writing to the Federal
Emergency
Management
Agency,
Attention: "In
Time
of
Emergency,"
Box
8181, Washington
D.C.
20024.In
addition
to the general nuclear
survival
information contained
in
this
publication,
you
should ask your
local
or
state
emergency
services
(civil
defense)
office
for
survival
information
specific
to
your
area.
 
What
warning
would
be
given of a nuclear
attack?
There are
two
standard warning
signals
which
have
been
adopted
in
most
communities.
The
Attention or Alert Signal
is
used
by
some
local
governments
toget
citizens
to
turn
on
aradio or
televisionto
get importantinformation about peacetime emergencies.
The
Attack
Warning
Signal
is
used
to
warn
of
an
actual
enemy
attack.
The
ATTENTION
OR
ALERT
SIGNAL
is
a 3-to5-minute steady
blast
on
sirens,
whistles,
horns, or other devices
~
If
you
should hear
the
Attention or AlertSignal,
turn
on
a radio
or
TV
set,
tune
in
to
any
local
station,
and
follow the
official
instructions
being broadcast.
The
ATTACK
WARNING
SIGNAL
is
a
3-to
5-minute wavering
sound
on
sirens,
or a
series
of
short
blasts
on
whistles,
horns or otherdevices, repeated as necessary.
~1t=Gd----
If
you
should hear
the
Attack
Warning
Signal--unless
your
local
government has
instructed
you
otherwise--go immediately
to
your
home
fallout
shelter
or to your basement.
Turn
on
a radio, tune
it
to
any
local
stationthat
is
broadcasting,
and
listen
for
official
information. Follow whatever
instructions
aregiven.
If
you
are not near
any
shelter,
find aprotected place
below
ground (such as a road
culvert)
where
you
can take cover
from
the
blast
wave
and
heat
flash,
then get
to
a
shelter
as quickly as
possible.
Light
would
reach
you
before the heat
and
blast.
Cover
your eyes,
and
do
not look
at
the
flash;
it
cancause blindness.
