Before an Event

This section of the web site describes the information you need and the actions you can take - as an individual, a member of the media, a public safety official, or an elected official – to prepare for the intentional release of radioactivity, whether from a “dirty bomb” or a nuclear blast.


The information and links within this section tell you:


  • The difference between a “dirty bomb” and a nuclear blast,

  • How to prepare a shelter within your house or place of business,

  • What to do with your pets,

  • And what type of shelter is best in case of a radiological or nuclear attack.
