A case study was made of the Knoxville-Knox County industrial area to determine the best methods for sheltering workers in critical industries which would continue to operate during a nuclear confrontation which had escalated to an urban evacuation. The alternatives by order of cost effectiveness are 1 Tactical evacuation 2 Expedient construction of covered trench blast shelters 3 Expedient modification of existing structures 4 Pre-crisis construction of blast shelters. Recommendations to implement the alternatives include pilot studies of tactical evacuation, improvement of expedient blast shelter construction and modification instructions. Author
