Abstract:

This report assesses the situation with regard to Civil Defense in Lincoln, Nebraska. Lincoln is a typical mid-western city and representative of many cities in the United States. As a result, the subjects treated in this report are applicable to many cities. The serious problem of insufficient existing buildings suitable for use as shelters is considered. A solution in volving the use of buildings with lower protec tion factors and a mobility system after attack is proposed. A radio communications system suitable to the needs of the area is proposed and discussed. A method of assigning people to shelters is demonstrated. A series of maps is developed which aid in making the shelter assign ments. A separate and supplemental report, Volume II of this study entitled LINCOLN SHELTER UTILIZATION STUDY - A Shelter Assignment Proce dure, has been issued, and provides a specific assignment of the people of Lincoln to existing shelter and shows the need for additional shelter.
