Pagination or Media Count:
The report outlines relevant aspects of civil defense history and provides a general overview of public attitudes during the past 20 years. Public attitude findings are summarized under such topics as the international context, threat perception, general favorability, program support, salience, perceptions of local programs, perceptions of shelters as a survival resource, response to warning, and training and education impact. Findings are reviewed relevant to such special audiences as information seekers, youth, local governing bodies, community power structure, and voluntary organizations. Projections are made relative to the meaning of these findings for civil defense in the 1970s. Author
