Abstract:

Three series of tests evaluated a ventilation kit, lighting kit, and dual-purpose container for functional adequacy and ease of assembly and operation in simulated fallout shelter environments. The first series of tests used 2-man teams and light and dark conditions, the second series 6-man teams, and the third series 400 people in a 48 hour shelter occupancy. The first and second test series evaluated and revised assembly and operating instructions, and developed shelter manager focus aides to eliminate difficulties discovered. Author
