KNOW WHAT TO DO
- If you see a flash or light brighter than the sun, turn away and get below window level, if possible under a heavy desk or table. Cover your head with your arms and face down.
Most people in a city hit by a terrorist bomb would survive because terrorist nukes are small.
- A shock wave with the fore of a tornado can hit in seconds, shattering windows. Stay down, count to 120 seconds.
Only if you are near ground zero will you be killed instantly. Most likely you will not be near there so if you duck and cover you have up to an 87% chance of not being injured vs. being killed if you remain standing.
- Put out any small fires that may have started near you. A burning building offers no shelter options: move quickly.
Unless you are downwind of a blast, there is little or no immediate danger of radioactive fallout. You can begin recovery work, putting out fires and helping the injured. Stay aware of shifting winds.
- If you are downwind from the blast walk away with the wind at your side---out of the path of fallout.
Radioactive fallout looks like grey sand. If you donít see any falling from the sky, then there is probably no radiation danger where you are---yet.
- If unable to walk away, take shelter in the basement of a large building or in the center of a middle floor high-rise.
If it appears that sand is falling or has fallen out of the sky, you will need to stay sheltered for about 3 days or more before you can walk our or be rescued.
