THE HOME NBC SHELTER
The Home Nuclear, Biological, Chemical (NBC) Shelter.
Shades of the 1960's. What is old is new again!
"U.S. Government warned Americans on February 10, 2003, to prepare for a possible attack involving biological, chemical or radiological weapons."
"Officials recommended that citizens stockpile enough food, water and medicine to last at least three days, and have duct tape and plastic sheeting to seal windows and doors. They advised that Americans educate themselves on how to survive a possible attack with a weapon of mass destruction."
"The recommendations, issued by the new Department of Homeland Security, mark the first time the government has issued such stark guidance through the news media." - USA Today, February 11, 2003
The old fallout shelter is not good enough anymore. Now the family needs protection not only from radioactive fallout, but also from biological and chemical agents.
Even if the electricity is still on, officials recommend that you turn off all ventilating systems (your heat and air conditioning) and tape up your windows and doors with plastic sheeting and duct tape to keep out radioactive materiel from a "dirty" bomb, as well as biological and chemical agents.
