Good God, They're Starting Talk About 'Preparedness' for Nuclear War

Carter Gaddis‏ @DadScribe
How is THIS abomination not @theonion? Good God, @CDCgov. Do you think it's 1958? HOW IS THIS A REAL THING IN 2018? https://www.cdc.gov/cdcgrandrounds/archives/2018/January2018.htm

CDC
Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation

January 16, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. (ET)

While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps. Despite the fear surrounding such an event, planning and preparation can lessen deaths and illness. For instance, most people don’t realize that sheltering in place for at least 24 hours is crucial to saving lives and reducing exposure to radiation. While federal, state, and local agencies will lead the immediate response efforts, public health will play a key role in responding.

Join us for this session of Grand Rounds to learn what public health programs have done on a federal, state, and local level to prepare for a nuclear detonation. Learn how planning and preparation efforts for a nuclear detonation are similar and different from other emergency response planning efforts.

CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds Presents:

“Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation”
Tuesday, January 16, 2018
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. (ET)
Global Communications Center (Building 19)

1. This is from the same agency that has

banned words. I truly believe this is nothing more than a way to stir the base, crank up the fear, and set up Twitler to be the "savior" who prevented a nuclear catastrophe.

...we 'ducked and covered' under our school desks in second grade '67.

They retired the air raid siren drills in '71.

14. We Quit Doing It After Cuba

I was in second grade then. We didn't do it any grade by 2nd. Maybe someone in the administration wised up and realized it would do no good and it was only scaring the crap out of the little kids.

18. does everyone remember "duck and cover"? duct tape and plastic?

my personal favourite (after the foot of dirt on top of your desk--way old) was the advice from the USPS to make sure you submitted a change of address form so you could get your mail.
