To help get the word out and put fallout shelters in their historical context, they have created District Fallout, a Web site devoted to fallout shelters and local Cold War history.
Among the more interesting features of the site are the map of fallout shelters in 1965 and the video below. According to Landmark Committee member Adam Irish, initial surveys of buildings designated as fallout shelters indicate that just 5-10% of shelter signs have survived.

I think there is a real bunker type shelter at the new Haynes charter school on Kansas Ave – I wish I had taken a picture. A few members on the Landmarks Committee are trying to preserve fallout shelter signs in D.C. In doing a survey of signs in the immediate area surrounding Park View, 5 out of approximately 20 signs still exist, or 25%.

The terrifying significance of the sign has since faded as well, but not its historical importance.
