Summary:
The objective of the National Fallout Shelter program is to provide shelter space for every American. Millions of shelter spaces have already been located in existing buildings, but not enough to satisfy requirements. Additional shelter spaces are necessary. The buildings depicted in this report illustrate what is now being accomplished to help alleviate this deficit.
This report contains descriptions, photographs, drawings, and cost analyses of 34 new structures with built-in fallout protection - buildings designed for and constructed in widely separated communities throughout the United States.
