Nuclear explosions are one of the deadliest types of attacks. With the power to kill millions in its path, these detonations are difficult to prepare for, especially considering their unexpected nature.
But with the turmoil our world is in today, there’s no better time to be prepared than right now.
Here are a few things you can do to be ready for a nuclear disaster:
Carry a personal radiation detector This can check radiation levels in the air around you and can be small enough to keep in your pocket.
Own a gas mask for nuclear and chemical emergencies No, you don’t have to wear this everywhere you go, but it’s wise to keep one in your car, home, or workplace.
Have a plan Know where to go whether you’re at work, home, or in a public place. Also plan how you’re going to get in touch with loved ones if a nuclear attack were to take place. Make sure your entire family (and even your friends or coworkers) are aware of your nuclear disaster survival plan, and even practice a few times. You can never be too prepared.
Have a stash of natural body cleansers If you happen to be within 100 miles of a nuclear disaster, you’ll need to flush radiation and other toxins from your body. Before it’s too late, store plenty of baking soda, water, and apple cider vinegar along with your bug out bag. You can mix baking soda with laundry detergent and other soaps in order to cleanse thoroughly in the event of a nuclear disaster.
Build a fallout roomThe best place for this would be in your home. This insulated room, where you should keep survival equipment, is meant to protect you from the radiation that results from a nuclear fallout.
Your best chance of survival comes from being ready for anything. You should always be aware of your surroundings and know how to fight back during any type of disaster.
