Abstract:

The paper argues that for each of a spectrum of interesting attacks, calculations of minimum required fallout protection which would assure high survival probabilities can be made for each U. S. community. Such calculations would provide a basis for local CD planning to reduce the vulnerability to fallout. If the CD program combined this balanced fallout protection with emergency evacuation from the more vulnerable areas, then the survival potential could become very great in situations which offered a few days or more of strategic warning. The shelter resources in the U. S. and their potential for such a CD program are analysed. Author
