Abstract:

In 1965, the American Institutes for Research produced a set of documents designed to aid persons with shelter management responsibilities in carrying out both their peacetime and emergency duties. The first volume in the set is a training text which serves as an introduction to the subject of shelter management. The second volume is a guidance document for planning a group fallout shelter. The final document is for in-shelter use, to assist the management staff in organizing and operating a shelter under occupancy conditions. Together, the three documents make up an integrated guidance package which covers the broad range of information and action requirements for shelter planning and management. The objective of the research program described in this report was to obtain empirical data on the individual effectiveness of these guidance documents and to assess the effectiveness of various combinations of these materials in enhancing the peacetime and emergency shelter management functions.
