The in-depth program urges the public to educate themselves as to sheltering in place, preparing an emergency kit including a radio and batteries, emergency food stores and water supplies.
The importance of creating a family plan is stressed during the video.
Be aware that there are no bomb shelters on Hawai’i Island; Cold War-era bomb shelters no longer remain.
One of the key messages is for people to shelter in place, taking cover in a building with doors and windows that can be closed against fallout dust.
Consider taking the time to watch this very timely video, which covers a wide range of concerns.
