Summary:
"In an atomic war, blast, heat, and initial radiation could kill millions close to ground zero of nuclear bursts. Many more millions-everybody else-could be threatened by radioactive fallout. But most of these could be saved. The purpose of this booklet is to show how to escape death from fallout. Everyone, even those far from a likely target, would need shelter from fallout. Your Federal Government has a shelter policy based on the knowledge that most of those beyond the range of blast and heat will survive if they have adequate protection from fallout."--Introduction, page 2
