Abstract:

This project addresses the issues surrounding the preparedness status of the United States to cope with the health and medical care requirements in the event of a nuclear attack. To assess the current status of National preparedness, System Sciences, Inc. conducted a series of interviews with Federal and regional health and Civil Defense planners as well as with health department personnel in five states. The overall conclusion was that there is little or no Civil Defense related emergency health service planning activity at any level of government. Author
