Although the Cold War is over, the world is awash with nuclear weapons and materials. There is a high probability for a nuclear disaster involving nuclear reactors, nuclear waste, weapons and weapons grade materials. This book discusses in layman's language the problems families face during disasters. Its premise is that if a family is prepared for any type of nuclear disaster, it will be prepared for other kinds of disasters -- which are increasing in number and intensity each year. Nuclear disasters can take many courses: the accidental detonation of a nuclear weapon, a reactor explosion and core meltdown, nuclear waste explosion, terrorist use of nuclear materials, nuclear spills -- each could result in a major disaster. The book explains in detail how to prepare for such extreme emergencies, from removing radionuclides from drinking water, storing emergency food and medicines, to treating those suffering from acute radiation sickness. The physical effects of nuclear explosions are explained as well as how to protect oneself and family from direct nuclear radiation, radioactive fallout, remove radioactive contamination from air, water and food. It also includes information on protecting electronic circuitry from EMP (Electromagnetic Pulses).
