THREE
PLANS

ATTACK
imMllllHln
 
STANFORD

INSTITUTE
MENLO
PARK,
CALIFORNIA
OFFICE
OF
THE
PRESIDENT
March
15,
1960
Tothe
SRI
staff:
We
at
SRI
recognize
that
nuclear
attack
upon
the
United
States
is
a
real
possibility.
At
the
same
time,
we
have
increasingly
realized
that
recovery
fromsuch
an
attack
is
just
as
real
a
possibility,
given
a
degree
of
carefulforethought.
People
are
our
nation's
most
precious
resource.
In
disaster,
organized
groups
of
people
accustomed
to
working
together
canbe
invalu-
able.
Our
understanding
at
SRIof
both
economic
and
techno-
logical
problems
would
make
us
particularly
important
to
our
country
in
case
of
a
nuclear
attack.
Thus,
we
feel
notonly
a
personal
but
also
a
nationalresponsibility
to
use
whatever
means
wecan
make
available
to
increase
our
chances
of
sur-
vivaland
ourability
to
continueworking
together
as
a
group.
Atthesame
time,
and
as
importantly,none
ofus
can
be
effec-
tive
withoutassurance
of
our
families'
safety,
and
we
there-
fore
want
to
plan
not
just
for
ourselves
but
for
our
families
as
well.
Fortunately
we
live
inan
area
geographically
so
related
to
potential
enemytargets
that
it
would
be
possible
to
save
lives.
On
the
basis
of
our
research
for
various
defense
agencies,
we
have
been
able
to
design
and
implement
a
program
forthe
protection
of
SRI
staff
and
families
that
wouldmake
use
of
SRI
basements
for
shelter.
I
urge
everyone
to
famil-
iarize
himself
with
the
plan
described
in
the
following
pages.
Although
we
are
particularly
anxious
to
preserve
the
staff
in
its
working
form
in
case
of
emergency
and
would
likethose
whocould
to
come
to
theSRI
basement,
we
also
realize
thatsome
staff
members
live
too
far
from
the
Institute
to
make
this
their
best
alternative.
Two
other
plans,
evacuation
anduse
of
homeshelters,
are
presented
for
consideration.
In
most
cases,
the
bestcourse
of
actionwould
be
clear;
where
theremay
be
a
question,however,
I
hope
you
will
plan
to
partici-
pate
in
the
SRI
basement
program.
In
anyevent,
everyone
should
select
someplan
andbe
prepared
toput
it
into
action.
Yourchance
of
surviving
a
nuclear
attack
is
negligible
if
you
are
not
prepared
for
it.
Sincerely
,
c
