Abstract : The object of this paper was to study the implementation of a particular civil defense program in an escalating crisis situation. The data selected for the test situation was mid-summer of 1973. We postulated that a full fallout shelter program had been initiated 7 years earlier, in 1966. This program was to provide a space for every citizen in his neighborhood and was to be completed in 8 years. Simultaneously, planning was undertaken for additional measures which could be implemented quickly in an emergency -- evacuation, the transport of food and other supplies into projected reception areas, the construction of expedient and improvised shelter. Approximately a billion dollars was expended on the total CD program each year after fiscal '66.
