Nuclear Attack Survival Guide

92

Eight years of left-wing leadership has led us to the brink, and still the left pursues worldwide anti-freedom polices, while wailing about “climate change.”

The Iran/NORK axis is on the precipice of war, and President Trump still has not purged the Obama holdovers.

This guide to nuclear attack survival ran in a mainstream newspaper.

PREPARING FOR ARMAGEDDON How to prepare for World War Three and what to do if there’s a nuclear attack – the official survival guide

Tensions between North Korea and the United States are creating mounting fears of nuclear war.

August 9, 2017, By Jon Lockett, The Sun (thanks to Marsha):

TENSIONS and threats between the United States and North Korea are sparking mounting fears nuclear war could be just around the corner.

With Donald Trump vowing to meet more North Korean threats with “power the likes of which the world has never seen” and Kim Jong-un responding with a plan for a nuke attack on the US island of Guam, plans are being made for the horror scenario.

Stay away from areas marked ‘radiation hazard’ or ‘HAZMAT’

It’s been reported the UK Government is now working on a new alert system to prepare Brits for the horror of a nuclear war.

Back in the dark days of the Cold War, the British government developed a “four minute warning” system to alert the public that the country had come under attack.

The warning system, which was in place from 1953-1992, used air raid sirens, TV bulletins and radio broadcasts to spread the terrifying news but, thankfully, it was never used.

In 2003, the National Attack Warning System (NAWS) was developed, allowing the government to warn the population by phone, radio and TV if we ever come under attack.

What to do before a nuclear blast?

The following are things experts recommend you can do to protect yourself, your family and your home if you believe an attack is imminent.

  • Build an Emergency Supply Kit, which includes items like non-perishable food, water, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra flashlights and batteries. You may want to prepare a kit for your workplace and a portable kit to keep in your car in case you are told to evacuate.
  • Make a Family Emergency Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency.
  • Find out from officials if any public buildings in your community have been designated as fallout shelters. If none have been designated, make your own list of potential shelters. These places would include basements or the windowless central area of middle floors in high-rise buildings.

What to do during a nuclear blast?

The following are guidelines for what to do in the event of a nuclear explosion.

  • Listen for official information via online, radio or TV and follow the instructions provided by emergency response personnel.
  • If an attack warning is issued, take cover as quickly as you can, below ground if possible, and stay there until instructed to do otherwise.
  • Find the nearest building, preferably built of brick or concrete, and go inside to avoid any radioactive material outside.
  • If better shelter, such as a multi-storey building or basement can be reached within a few minutes, go there immediately.
  • Go as far below ground as possible or in the centre of a tall building. The goal is to put as many walls and as much concrete, brick and soil between you and the radioactive material outside.
  • Expect to stay inside for at least 24 hours unless told otherwise by authorities.

What to do if you are caught outside?

  • Do not look at the flash or fireball – it can blind you.
  • Take cover behind anything that might offer protection.
  • Lie flat on the ground and cover your head. If the explosion is some distance away, it could take 30 seconds or more for the blast wave to hit.
  • Take shelter as soon as you can, even if you are many miles from ground zero where the attack occurred – radioactive fallout can be carried by the winds for hundreds of miles.
  • If you were outside during or after the blast, get clean as soon as possible, to remove radioactive material that may have settled on your body.
  • Remove your clothing to keep radioactive material from spreading. Removing the outer layer of clothing can remove up to 90% of radioactive material.
  • If practical, place your contaminated clothing in a plastic bag and seal or tie the bag.
  • When possible, take a shower with lots of soap and water to help remove radioactive contamination. Do not scrub or scratch the skin.
  • Wash your hair with shampoo or soap and water. Do not use conditioner in your hair because it will bind radioactive material to your hair, keeping it from rinsing out easily.

People are advised to research where their nearest nuclear bunker is

What to do after a nuclear blast?

Decay rates of the radioactive fallout are the same for any size nuclear device.

However, the amount of fallout will vary based on the size of the device and its proximity to the ground. Therefore, it might be necessary for those in the areas with highest radiation levels to shelter for up to a month.

The heaviest fallout would be limited to the area at or downwind from the explosion and 80 percent of the fallout would occur during the first 24 hours.

People in most of the areas that would be affected could be allowed to come out of shelter within a few days and, if necessary, evacuate to unaffected areas.

Keep listening to the radio and television for news about what to do, where to go and places to avoid.

Stay away from damaged areas. Stay away from areas marked ‘radiation hazard’ or ‘HAZMAT.’ Remember that radiation cannot be seen, smelled or otherwise detected by human senses.

    There is really nothing that can be done but kiss your ass goodby. Nuclear explosions are fairly close to serious.

    • Hasa La Vista, FAT BOY!

      Nah, lots of folks have survived nukes. Thousands of soldiers during nuke tests, many in Nagasaki, and Hiroshima, etc………. Nuke craters are tourist attractions in Nevada, USA:

      Fat boy of North Korea better think about who he’s dealing with.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Considering the size of the first nuclear weapons, some survival would be possible, contemporary ones are considerably larger.
        The bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were relatively low yield weapons with yields of 15kt and 21kt of TNT respectively. The average nuclear warhead today has a yield of about 200kt and the most powerful nuclear device ever detonated had a yield of 50mt with a maximum of 100mt. The reason we stopped producing bombs with the explosive power of millions of tons of TNT is because we are able to accurately place the warhead within a few feet of the target.

        • Coastie407

          Mahou, you are describing nuclear weapons like the ones produced by the U.S. and the U.S.S.R./now Russia. North Korea at very best has weapon more akin to what was used in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. While very serious, especially if detonated on a small target like Guam (and if their guidance system can even find Guam), the reality is this will be a very localized threat.

          A high altitude air burst resulting in a wide scale EMP across a large swath of the target nation would have a far greater effect, as it will wipe out anything with an electrical/electronic switch.

          This is a threat far beyond losing connectivity with the Internet (although that alone will terrify most teenagers and millennials…) From our traffic lights to our water system nearly every modern convenience (necessity really) is controlled by electronics.

          An EMP strike will revert us back nearly 200 years in a flash.

          Are we ready for that?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Considering an internet outage is considered a disaster of epic proportions, even a localized emp would be disruptive enough to cause widespread panic and confusion. Sooner or later north korea will figure this out.

          • Coastie407

            I’m sure they have already connected the dots. Mahou.

            My point is do not get caught up in how large the detonation could be, or even the issue of radioactivity and fallout, as one small bomb like what we believe they currently have, as that footprint would be small and its effects temporary (again look at Hiroshima and Nagasaki today).

            Read the book “On Thermonuclear War” by Herman Kahn (1960) to get a real, unbiased look at the true impact of a nuclear attack (and its not the scenario put forth in the 1959 movie “On the beach.”

            The true threat is an EMP strike, as this would not be “localized” by any stretch of the term. Note that ONE dangling power line in the Cleveland, Ohio area caused a black-out that impacted 26 U.S. states, and three Canadian provinces.

            An EMP strike could cripple out country for decades, especially now that we are so dependent on electronics for everything to work. The worse part is for the last several years our government, while fully aware of the threat, has done very, very little to deal with this. Only in the last new months under the new Administration are they seriously looking at this threat.

            You can check out two books that deal with this subject: “Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath” by Ted Koppel (2015), and “A Nation Forsaken: EMP: The Escalating Threat of an American Catastrophe” by Michael Maloof (2013).

            These three books will open your eyes.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            The sizeof the detonation is irrelevant, the fact that it happened, if it ever does is the real issue. Back in the 60’s a terrorist group called the “weather underground” or something like it, took to destroying electrical distribution substations, the same thing happening today would be extremely disruptive and destructive to society. The ease of which America could be brought to its knees is frightening.

          • Coastie407

            Exactly!
            The EMP that emanates from a small nuclear device detonated high enough over Wyoming or Tennessee can take out the grid of the entire Western or Eastern half of the country respectively.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            That would be severely inconvenient, steps will have to be taken to assure that does not happen.

          • Mark Steiner

          • tallorder

            An EMP strike would, in the long run, be a good thing. Initially it would be absolute bedlam.
            Yet, we arrived at this point because of classical liberalism. Contemporary liberalism is merely the descendant of classical. There is no “conserving” a liberal system, whether in its infancy or the contemporary evolution. Thus, a hard reset is required.

            1000+ years of Christendom: Western Civilization
            200 years of secularism: children confused as to which bathroom to use.

            We must choose.

          • Coastie407

            Not sure if that “hard reset” would be such a great idea. Most people have issues dealing with the travails of life in the current times. An EMP strike will take us to the pre Civil War era.

            Remeber, anything with a switch will not function, including our current water and sewer systems, that of course run on electrical pumps and valves.

            Mass communication reverts to manually operated preses; guess well have to steal them from the museums. Foodstuffs will move via horse-drawn carts, as cars and trucks will no longer function.

            Lastly, this won’t be an inconvenient couple of days but a whole new lifestyle for months even years, as our systems are so interconnected that a regional failure can drag the whole grid down.

            In short, a very hard reset.

          • tallorder

            Yes, I understand. I’ve been reading your posts here on the subject; you’re obviously very knowledgeable.
            The perspective I am seeing is the continuity of liberalism throughout history; from five hundred years ago, exactly from this year, until today. I’m seeing such a situation as totally inevitable; a chastisement from God of sorts. I mean, we’re the first secular, godless State founded in recorded human history. When Adam’s was asked why God wasn’t mentioned in the Constitution (besides a hat-tip in the dating, “Anno Domini”), he replied, “I say sir, we forgot!”
            We, as a society, stand truth next to error and give both equal rights. We stand Jesus Christ next to Mahomet, Krishna, Buddha, and even Satan–then our little ‘conservative’ (classical liberal) quislings are happy just to be able to have a place in the Pantheon.

            My point is, we’ve come to a head. God won’t take open blasphemy forever.

          • Mark Steiner

            The United States has spent the last 115 years, and in particular, the last 50 or so, shaking its fist in the face of the Almighty. This nation is on borrowed time and something major (nuclear war, EMP, Yellowstone) is imminent, and can bring this nation down with little effort. Prayer still works, but an atheistic culture will never choose this option. God is clear though: II Chronicles 36:15-16, Jeremiah 18:7-8, II Chronicles 7:13-14.

          • tallorder

            Absolutely. I found these articles very prescient. Perhaps our nation will convert. Yet, I am convinced that our foundational ideology must also be converted.

          • Coastie407

            Tallorder, you bring an interesting and thought provoking perspective to our conversation.

            I agree that today’s hunamistic, liberal thought is a far cry of the liberalist thought of Locke and Rousseau, that in turn guided Jefferson, Madison, Monroe and the rest of the Framers as they crafted the structure of our nation.

            Our collective downfall starts with the injection of poisionoius thoughts of Bukarinm, Marx and others, that in time evolved into a more socially acceptable Progressivism.

            The man-centered concepts of Progressivism have turn us away from God as our Crestor, and now we see a series of generations–for the most part after World War Two–that see man as his own creator

            Somehow we weathered Y2K, in spire of dire warnings of computer system meltdowns.

            An errant solar burst (coronal mass ejection) would accomplish the same.

          • tallorder

            As a software engineer, Y2K was a very real “thing.” Unix dates are stored from 1/1/1970 and calculated from then. To save hard disk space, engineers used a 2-digit year format. When the clocked rolled over to 2000, software–independent and enterprise–could potentially view the date as 1900 or 0000, etc. A digital reset.
            What *could* have happened is almost limitless as it all depended upon how the software was written in each instance.
            Unlike the EMP issue, though, companies spent billions and many years upgrading software.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            My friend had his COBOL career resurrected by Y2K. He was getting $184/hr. to fix old COBOL code.

          • Coastie407

            Yes, a “rouge sun spot” would accomplish much the same effect.

            Regarding Y2K, that need up being a mon-event, in part due to the great work of software engineers that fixed older programs and the marketing guys that took this threat and turned it into the selling opportunty of a lifetime.

            Folks in the IT world will argue endlessly that we came “close to the abyss” with Y2K, but the best thing that came of this was both a highthed awareness of what computers can do, as well as an enormous injection of new, non-investment capitalism into this still new industry; this capitalism generated by the massive purchases of new computers, replacing still usual units.

            This last issue created the culture that computers have a short operating life due to constant innovation, therefore it makes good business sense to replace and upgrade constantly.

            By injecting tons more money into the computer indusry, this financed that growth and advancement in innovation.

            Anyhow, while a great sidetrack, not really a good analogy to the current situation.

          Nork bombs run up to 40KT. That is NOT twice as powerful as the Nagasaki bomb. You are dealing with the physics of the volume of a sphere. It takes an 80KT bomb to double the Nagasaki bomb. It is called the inverse sguare law. US bombs are mostly 50 KT today. MT bombs are long out of favor.

    We used to practice nuclear strike survival in the Navy. The scenario would start with “HIT ALPHA! HIT ALPHA! NUCLEAR BURST 1000 YARDS OFF THE PORT BEAM! GENERAL QUARTERS!” This would come over the ships announcing system and we’d spend the next 3 hours with shirts buttoned to the top, wearing gas masks, and pretending to survive. My ship was a frigate. She had an aluminum superstructure that would have melted like wax with a nuclear air burst 1000 yards away. That would have exposed any survivors to massive radiation IF they survived the giant tsunami wave that would be generated from the near surface blast. We’d play along just to make the officers happy. But we were realists. We knew we’d be dead almost immediately.

    • famouswolf

      Oh, yeah, I remember those. USS Shreveport, in the early seventies. The NATO exercise Dawn Patrol in ’73, Broken Arrow exercise, practice landing on Crete. This was six months before the Yom Kippur war, and things were tense in the Mediterranean at the time, we were closer to WW3 than we are right now, by a long shot.
      We called the tsunami the ‘base surge’, remember? I do indeed remember thinking, ‘what the hell, a nuclear fireball, we’re roasted, then we get drowned?’ heh. I also remember the gruesome casualty drills, setting aside a compartment for stacks of corpses and the lectures describing the various forms of death in such a scenario.
      I was not too worried, because I was in an exposed position at battle stations and would have been vaporized at the beginning of such a scenario. Combat talker in the air control tower amidships.

    Long as Mr. Piggy in NK is shooting at our big cities, it’s a win-win. Those are the people who NEED to be eliminated!

    Folks, I hate to be a downer, but the best place to be in major nuclear war would be in ground zero. Trust me. The lucky ones will be vaporized immediately.
    The world afterwards? See ‘The Road’, by Cormac McCarthy.

      Actually, much of that is untrue. Even a mid-sized nuclear bomb has a smallish footprint, and will not render the impact area unfit for human existence for thousands of years. Much of that comes from the political rhetoric of the “ban the bomb” leftists of the 1940s. Interestingly, most of them got very quiet after the USSR also had nuclear weapons.

      I invite you to read the book “On Thermonuclear War” by Herman Kahn (1960) to get a real, unbiased look at the true impact of a nuclear attack (and its not the scenario put forth in the 1959 movie “On the beach”).
      This book really scared a lot of people not because it showed total devastation of the targeted location–which was the glue that held the mutually assured destruction (or MAD) theory in-place. Rather Kahn was able to show that it is both doable and survivable.

      Personally, I think that Kahn was on to something. A few years back I had the opportunity to visit the Nevada Nuclear Test Site, where for several decades, we tested hundreds of nuclear devices in air-burst, surface, and sub-surface (underground) scenarios, sometimes more than one a week.

      Even in the case of the largest surface explosions, little to no effects, including blast, thermal, and radioactive impacts were desirable within five miles of ground zero. Yes, you can pack a lot of Manhattan, Los Angeles, Miami, or any major city in those five miles, and please do not think for a minute that I am encouraging or proposing the use of nuclear weaponry.

      My point is this. Sadly, we need to have them, in large part because they exist, and there are elements in the world that continue to wish us harm, and they have them as well. At such, we need them as a weapon of last resort, if for nothing else to make sure the other side is willing to talk.

      Even with all this bluster, North Korea is talking, and at one point, cooler heads will prevail over there, but only if they are convinced that if push comes to shove, we will light them up like a Roman Candle and turn the northern end of the Korean peninsula into glass.

      Our prior commanders-in-chief, for a plethora of reasons, were unable to convince the PDRK leadership of our resolve. In so dong, by the same bluster we are witnessing now, they were able to extract concessions from the West in general, and the United States in particular.

      In the early years of our Republic, The Barbary Pirates made a very good living threatening commercial ships, stealing their cargo and taking Western sailors captive to be sold as slaves. However, they were willing to respect vessels who’s governments paid “tribute” (an official bribe) to respect the flag flown on their ships.
      Most European nations, at the time embroiled in a series of wars on the Continent, were happy just to pay the bribe and be rid of the problem, and the young government of the United States followed suit. By the time Thomas Jefferson became president, these tribute payments were over half of the federal budget!

      Rather than send more bribes, Jefferson sent the Marines. Our Leathernecks took on the privates in their capital in Tripoli, and in their victory, earned a world-wide reputation of unyielding toughness and rectitude, for both themselves and our young country… as well as a line in the Marine Hymm.

      Today, we find ourselves in a similar crossroads. The geography may be different, the issue remarkably similar, and equally clear. We can continue to pay “tribute” to the petty leadership of the Hermit Kingdom of North Korea, of face them down squarely and resolutely.

      This will not come to nuclear war, as the Koreans themselves know full well the capabilities of the United States and realize that any adverse action on their part will result in a quick and decisive death sentence within minutes.

      We must stand resolute, as our Marines were storming the shores of North Africa over two centuries past, and tell both the North Koreans and the world that we will no longer tolerate this nonsense.

      Whether stand strong and firm, or once again cave–as the antiwar protestors at the 1968 riots in Chicago were yelling, “…the whole world is watching…”

      Let us send a strong message that the United States is not to be trifled.

        I agree with you, all the way down the line. I’ve been well educated on the facts you point out since childhood. My old man worked at K 25 in the Oak Ridge nuclear diffusion plant and educated me regarding these facts.
        I did say ‘major’, as in all arsenals expended. Unlikely, but a scenario in which survival would be a cruel joke. Speaking of which, I am under the influence of gallows humor tonight. It ain’t funny, but there’s this urge to make bad jokes and laugh at it all, you know?

        • Coastie407

          Roger that Wolf! What’s that line from the song, “…if we weren’t all crazy, we’d all go insane….”
          They did some “interesting” stuff at K-25 back in the day, stuff we still cannot talk about. Your dad must have been a very intelligent man, and with a good engineering imagination.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      That was a great book that had a depressing ending. On The Beach was a pretty good nuclear apocalyptic book too.

  • felix1999

    There won’t be a nuclear attack – JUST YET.
    Having said that for FUTURE use this is useful.
    Trump is the kind of guy that will “move the cheese” around to get the mouse to follow it. The last thing Trump really wants is a war.

  • Alleged Comment

    Sean Hannity plays the clip of the rapist Bill Clinton praising his program to help North Korea wean off nuclear weapons and that country will like us and become peaceful and all that Clintion communist CRAP.

    Looks like all he did was ARM them to the TEETH. I say we ARREST this rapist for LYING to US!! Now it has endangered millions of people with damages into the BILLIONS from that FAT KOREAN!!

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Maybe the amoral leftards think a nuclear winter might offset global warming.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    …as long as there are fat people still around that I can BBQ, I’ll manage to survive any Armageddon…

    This guide is really basic and if followed you will only last a week ! Here is a bit more basic info that will help you survive . You need to drink a diluted solution of Iodine as soon as you see a nuclear blast this will help to stop glands in your body absorbing radiation . Do not buy dry food you will need all the water for drinking , Fill baths sinks and containers with water as it will soon stop coming from the tap or be contaminated water is most essential get as mush as you can,To keep your saved water safe use a drop of bleach this will stop water deterioration. As well as tinned meats, beans it is essential to have tinned fruit ,sugar , salt ,nuts and peanut butter Vitamin tablets. Nuts are good for energy but also can be set on fire and used as a flame for cooking and heat . It will get cold after a nuclear war so make sure you have winter clothing to hand , this along with nuts for fuel will help , And last thing arm your self with what ever weapons you can because there will be little or no law and no way of contacting the police , There will be lawlessness and bad people will want what you have and will kill for it .

    Fine Advise Pamela! Simple & yet specific! SADLY our Govt. hasn’t THOUGHT THROUGH the NEEDS of the “peons” & “serfs”…But! Thanks to Yahwey, we have our God given wisdom, (that POLS gave up YEARS AGO)…We’ll MAKE DO! THANKS AGAIN for all that you do!

    A far greater danger is the islamic fifth column! With over 35 muslim military training camps in the USA and tens of thousands of military sleepers awaiting the command to destroy our communication and power infrastructures. They have huge amounts of military grade weapons at their disposal to use against our hunting rifles.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Well if North Korea could afford to pay out tens of millions of dollars in bribery payments to US senators and congressmen they wouldn’t be considered a threat any more — except by communistaphobes.

    I wonder whatever happened to all the CD (Civil Defense) nuclear bunkers built in the US in the 50’s?

    • Coastie407

      When we went from defending the entire population to the MAD Doctrine.

      Actually having enough shelters to protect everyone soon became an untenable proposition, as it was calculated to absorb the entire federal budget, but more importantly it was seen as if we were getting ready for a preemptive first strike. We were watching the Soviets doing the same thing and were having the same thoughts.

      The official rhetoric–on both sides–became a nuclear war was unwinnable, as we have enough material to kill everyone several times over, so let’s leave EVERYONE exposed, creating the MAD or Mutually Assured Destruction theory (McEnaney, 2000).

      Yes, it worked and worked well, as it froze both sides to fear the weapon, and brought common sense into negotiations.

      The fly in the ointment is that the MAD theory is only that, and Khan (1960) and others (all far more well-versed in the subject any of us) concluded that such a war is doable and survivable. Having been on the Nevada Nuclear Test Range and seen the relatively small destructive footprint of even the largest bombs we were testing in the 1950s (both air, ground, and underground bursts) and the short half-life of most radioactive fallout (mostly created by ground bursts, by the way) makes all this scarier, as it is doable.

      One major pro and con. First, none of the nuclear powers ever tested concurrent detonations (as in within a few minutes of each other in a nearby zone). I suspect that the engineers believe that the resulting EMP in the area will prevent the follow-on bombs from either exploding, or being able to be properly guided to their target. The non-classified literature is nearly non-existent on this issue.

      Second, the issue of EMPs is in the long term far more dangerous, as a high airburst can render the entire electrical grid of the target wiped out within seconds, even if not destroyed by the blast (see comments above).

      As I mentioned in other prior postings, this would take us back 150 years in a flash, and the recovery interval would be measured in months if not years.

      We can go on with this, but I think this answers your question and then some.

        So what was done w/all the CD bunkers? Many major cities had them.

        • Coastie407

          Many are still there. Most are either empty other than the accumulated debris of decades of abandonment, while others have been re-purposed by the building owners.
          You can find much of the equipment that was used to stock these shelters on eBay, and there is a Museum of Civil Defense in I believe Dallas, Texas, that was a large collection of this gear on display.
          The federal government even assembled the equipment of what can best be described as a “civil defense field hospital” complete with surgical tables and the like. This gear, while based on military equipment was different and specific to the Office of Civil Defense.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            I remember it used to be possible to buy old, de-commisioned, nuclear missile silos from the US federal government — the way things are going maybe that wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
