Abstract:

A 2-week summer trial was conducted at Bethesda, Maryland, during August 1962, in a protective shelter blast, radioactive fallout, and biological and chemical warfare designed by the Bureau of Yards and Docks, now Naval Facilities Engineering Command. Navy volunteers served as the shelter subjects. Two naval officers served as shelter commander and medical officer. Since the primary purpose of this trial was to study the engineering features of the shelter, it was considered desirable to conduct the trial with a carefully selected, reasonably homogeneous group of shelterees. Therefore, the shelterees, selected from a group of volunteers, were screened both medically and psychologically. Author
