About the Event
By nuclear war, terrorist attack or nuclear power plant accident, radioactive material may one day settle on your neighborhood. What is this fallout? By what means is it hazardous? How does it make remaining out-of-doors no longer safe? What preventative measures need be taken to ensure the health of you and your loved ones? Pursuing a nontechnical and visually engaging approach to answering these questions, this presentation describes nuclear radiation and its biological effects. Building upon this introduction, guidance is provided on how to effectively respond to a radiation emergency and safely navigate the enhanced radiation environment. The topics covered include external exposure, external and internal contamination, radiation detection equipment, and safe sheltering.
