Abstract:

Culminating several years of research on the problem of rescue after nuclear attack, this study reviews past work and presents a preliminary design of a general rescue system. In this system, the population would be dormant during the non-crisis period, but would be aroused at the earliest sign of a crisis, to prepare for attack and to carry out postattack rescue operations under recognized local leaders. In each urban area, this leadership would be provided by a small group or cadre drawing upon neighborhood leadership through an inactive reserve of citizen organizations. The cadre would supply the continuing readiness in peacetime under the guidance of the OCD.
