Nuclear disaster preparedness is likely a concern for many, but such a scenario is of particular importance to Americans living within 100 miles of a plant or waste disposal facility. A majority (32) of states have a nuclear power plant, and even ones that don’t are located next to one right across the border.
The Fukishima nuclear plant meltdown in Japan illustrates the broad reach such a disaster can have.
As if the earthquake and tsunami disaster were not enough, Japanese nuclear scientists are warning of a possible related reactor-explosion.
With a second hydrogen blast on Monday morning destroying the outer walls of one of the reactor units, Japanese nuclear specialists are struggling to cool three affected units at the Fukushima-1 Nuclear Power Plant. Cooling systems are said to be malfunctioning, and, according to Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA), the plant is in danger of a meltdown, though they guarantee that, “There is no possibility of a Chernobyl-style accident at the site.” The events have led Japan to appeal to the United States for help.
In the midst of this news, it is timely that we take the opportunity to advise our clients and friends about steps to take in order to prepare for and react to potential disasters of this magnitude.

FEMA’s most comprehensive source on individual, family, and community preparedness, the PDF provides current and up-to-date disaster preparedness information to reference if there is, among other things, an imminent terrorist or strategic nuclear attack threat. The nature of the threat, your prior preparations, and your confidence in your sources of information should inform your decision.
Your first priorities should be handling any medical emergencies and arranging for food, shelter, water and emergency provisions. Sadly, many folks live within a dangerous fallout zone and do not even realize they are at risk – especially if it storms or high winds occur right after a nuclear disaster.
Leaving your home if you live within 100 miles of a nuclear facility after either a man-made or natural disaster is of course the first and best option for survival.
Some nuclear disaster preparedness experts feel that despite contrary arguments, thoroughly washing produce will remove radioactive particles. Drinking natural body cleansers is also recommended for anyone within 100 miles of a nuclear disaster.

This constitutes a 'fair use' of any such copyrighted material as provided for in Title 17 section 106A-117 of the Copyright Law. Adopting an “anti-radiation” diet now, and storing such foods for consumption during a nuclear disaster could also enhance survival. A Kearny Fallout Meter (KFM) is a simplistic and affordable electroscope that is highly regarded for its accuracy.
Put the produce, or any object touched by radiation, in the mixture, cover it, and let it sit for 10 minutes.

    Bolt-action rifles are very recommended as nicely, as they are quite challenging the pulses, and could.
