Abstract:

Two surveys were conducted to evaluate the response in Rhode Island to a questionnaire on Evaluation of Fallout Protection in Homes. FPHS Receipt of the FPHS questionnaire did not significantly change attitudes toward civil defense programs, nor did it raise the level of anxiety in the community. Receipt of replies to the householders responses which preceded the second survey did raise the level of awareness about civil defense, without significantly changing the level of anxiety or changing the activity of householders with regard to a fallout shelter program. The FPHS questionnaire program, while useful in eliciting information, cannot by itself serve to encourage action to any useful degree by the public with regard to fallout shelters. Author
