“For many of those who survive the blast and fire effects, there will be no safe or scientific way to gauge how long to stay in their shelters, at least in the initial period after the blast.” Kennedy, Edward, and Mark Hatfield. Freeze. New York: Bantam Books, 1982, p. 95.
NUCLEAR WAR FACT: Anybody can purchase a simple survey meter, which measures the radiation rate.
This statement is true only for the ignorant and unprepared. Anybody can purchase a simple survey meter, which measures the radiation rate. All shelterists should have a radiation survey meter and a radio to keep abreast of the situation throughout the country. Daily readings of radioactivity will be reported on AM, FM, and emergency broadcast stations. Not all stations are likely to be destroyed.
