Many has predicted that World War 3 will start soon as US missile killed Iran’s top general Qasem Soleimani and we are not all safe because Nuclear weapon will be used.
But some countries are declared safest to hide if war breaks out as suggested by the Global Peace Index: 1. Iceland 2. New Zealand 3. Portugal 4. Austria 5. Denmark 6. Canada 7. Singapore 8. Slovenia 9. Japan 10. Czech Republic.
So if your country is not among these countries, here is what experts advise you do if WWIII breaks out.
What to do before a nuclear blast?
A nuclear blast could take place without lengthy warning.Therefore if you think an attack is likely it is best to be prepared.
Experts recommend you follow the guidelines below to protect yourself, your family and your home:
Build an Emergency Supply Kit, which includes items like non-perishable food, water, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra flashlights and batteries. You may want to prepare a kit for your workplace and a portable kit to keep in your car in case you are told to evacuate.
Make a Family Emergency Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency.
Find out from officials if any public buildings in your community have been designated as fallout shelters. If none have been designated, make your own list of potential shelters. These places would include basements or the windowless central area of middle floors in high-rise buildings.
What should you have in your survival kit?
It’s suggested you go out and buy as many of these items as quickly as possible:
Canned goods (stews, fruit, tuna, meats, etc)
Ready-to-eat foods (granola, cheese, protein bars, etc)
Assorted drink mixes, if you have children with you
Iodine solution, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, painkillers
Largest bags of rice, beans, flour, oats, sugar and honey
Gallons of cooking oil
Baking powder & baking soda & spice assortment pack
A manual can opener
Kitchen matches and disposable lighters
Sanitary napkins and diapers, if needed
Flashlights (ideally LED) and portable radios, if you don’t already have them
Plenty more batteries, at least three sets, for each of the above
Bottled water (especially if home supplies not secured yet)
Paper or plastic plates/cups/utensils
Cheap plastic hooded rain ponchos
What to do during a nuclear blast?
The following are guidelines for what to do in the event of a nuclear explosion.
Listen for official information via online, radio or TV and follow the instructions provided by emergency response personnel.
If an attack warning is issued, take cover as quickly as you can, below ground if possible, and stay there until instructed to do otherwise.
Find the nearest building, preferably built of brick or concrete, and go inside to avoid any radioactive material outside.
If better shelter, such as a multi-storey building or basement can be reached within a few minutes, go there immediately.
Go as far below ground as possible or in the centre of a tall building. The goal is to put as many walls and as much concrete, brick and soil between you and the radioactive material outside.
Expect to stay inside for at least 24 hours unless told otherwise by authorities.
What to do if you are caught outside during a nuclear blast?
Do not look at the flash or fireball – it can blind you.
Take cover behind anything that might offer protection.
Lie flat on the ground and cover your head. If the explosion is some distance away, it could take 30 seconds or more for the blast wave to hit.
Take shelter as soon as you can, even if you are many miles from ground zero where the attack occurred – radioactive fallout can be carried by the winds for hundreds of miles.
If you were outside during or after the blast, get clean as soon as possible, to remove radioactive material that may have settled on your body.
Remove your clothing to keep radioactive material from spreading. Removing the outer layer of clothing can remove up to 90% of radioactive material.
If practical, place your contaminated clothing in a plastic bag and seal or tie the bag.
When possible, take a shower with lots of soap and water to help remove radioactive contamination. Do not scrub or scratch the skin.
Wash your hair with shampoo or soap and water. Do not use conditioner in your hair because it will bind radioactive material to your hair, keeping it from rinsing out easily.
