Prepare! (North Korea & Russia) Nuclear Attack Fact Sheet Is Available For All Americans

Nuclear Attack Fact Sheet: U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Image result for Nuclear attackAs we monitor the world situations, only people who are fully ignorant can ignore the very real possibility of a Nuclear Attack from rogue nations such as North Korea, Russia or Iran. Or even from some terrorist group, as that is becoming a more realistic possibility daily.

When I was a child, we used to have the duck and cover drills in elementary school.  This was climbing under your wooden desk and/or gathering in the hallway, lining the walls.  This was in preparation for incoming Nuclear Missiles from the USSR at the time.

Also, there was a large influx of backyard bomb shelters.  These were on display to the public in the parking lots of many grocery stores throughout America.  You could look in through the windows and see stocks of supplies as well as bunk beds and other living facilities.

For us back in the early 60's, this was the normal thing.  There were many hours within the school year teaching us on how to survive a nuclear attack.

Those teachings have become a thing of the past.  One can do a lot of online research and find a tremendous amount of information on how to survive and what items should be in your survival kit (view and read about my kit) for a nuclear attack.

The United States Department of Homeland Security has a great fact sheet that the have prepared that can be download here. (PDF file).  Within the fact sheet, various items are discussed as listed below.
