In the event of a nuclear attack, it is important to be prepared and know what steps to take in order to survive. The most important thing to remember is to stay away from outside walls and ceilings, as well as any tall furniture or windows that may break. Try to maintain a distance of at least six feet between you and people who are not part of your household. If possible, wear a mask if you are sheltering with people who are not part of your household.
If the walls collapse, you may be able to survive in a pocket in the rubble. If you are caught outside during a nuclear attack, try to find something to cover yourself with, such as a piece of clothing, door, or piece of furniture. It is also important to know how far you live and work from major nuclear power plants and potential nuclear attack sites. A nuclear attack occurs when a nuclear bomb is detonated in the air or on the ground, causing a devastating explosion.
Knowing how to prepare for and survive a nuclear attack can help save lives.
