Abstract:

Using opinion poll data and information about current peacetime activities of local civil defense units primarily in smaller cities, this study lists, categorizes, and evaluates possible peacetime roles for civil defense, considers potential risks in assuming and performing these roles, and suggests appropriate supportive functions for OCD. The study tentatively differentiates 3 types of local CD units on the basis of present capabilities, and suggests that upgrading these capabilities requires a responsive differentiation strategy for OCD assistance.
