Abstract:

The types, accuracies, ranges, and quantity of radiological information required at various levels of the Civil Defense organization and the RADEF information interchange among levels thought to be required are specified. The basic form of a RADEF system to minimize loss of life andor mitigate radiation injuries at the local level is suggested. The information required is dependent upon the action options open to a local group placed at hazard from fallout and other primary and secondary weapon effects and their choice of the option they believe to present the least hazard. The existence of adequate communications with higher levels of the Civil Defense organization raises the likelihood of their correctly choosing the least hazardous action option. The RADEF system suggested may be used effectively in a wide spectrum of attack and hazard state situations to mitigate loss of life and severity of injuries. Author
