Sweden issues 20-page 'be prepared for war' pamphlet to every home in the country

Post  kelee877 on Tue May 22, 2018 5:20 am

The Swedish government has given out an emergency pamphlet to prepare millions of citizens for a war, natural disaster or cyber attack amid soaring tensions between Russia and the West.

Entitled 'If Crisis or War Comes', the brochure is published in 13 languages at the request of the government and gives advice on how to take shelter, what foods to store and what information to trust.

It will be sent to 4.8 million Swedes between May 28 and June 3.

The 20-page document outlines with simple illustrations the threats which the Nordic nation is facing such as military conflict, natural disasters, cyber and terror attacks.

PREPARING FOR WAR How to prepare for WW3 and what you should do if there’s a nuclear attack

What to do before a nuclear blast?
Experts recommend you follow the guidelines below to protect yourself, your family and your home - if you believe an attack is imminent.

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 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?
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.
What should you have in your survival kit?
The experts at Three World Wars suggest you go out and buy as many of these items as quickly as possible:

Canned goods (pasta, soups, stews, chili, vegetables, fruit, tuna, meats, etc)
Ready-to-eat foods (pop-tarts, raisins, cheese, granola/energy/protein bars, etc)
First aid kit
Multiple containers of peanut butter
Assorted drink mix flavorings, if you have children with you
Iodine solution
Multiple big boxes of dried milk
Largest bags of rice, beans, flour, oats, sugar and honey
Large 2 gallons or more of cooking oil
Baking powder & baking soda & spice assortment pack
Quality 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)
Baby wipes (saves water for personal hygiene use)
Bleach (5.25%, without fragrance or soap additives)
Hydrogen Peroxide
Fire extinguisher
Paper or plastic plates/cups/utensils
Dust mask filter protectors
Cheap plastic hooded rain ponchos
Water filters

What to do after a nuclear blast?
With the tensions showing no signs of letting up it's been reported the UK Government is now working on a new alert system to prepare Brits for the horror of a nuclear war.

Back in the dark days of the Cold War, the British government developed a “four-minute warning” system to alert the public that the country had come under attack.

The warning system, which was in place from 1953-1992, used air raid sirens, TV bulletins and radio broadcasts to spread the terrifying news but, thankfully, it was never used.

In 2003, the National Attack Warning System (NAWS) was developed, allowing the government to warn the population by phone, radio and TV if we ever come under attack.

Nowadays nuclear bomb alert text messages and social media are the preferred method.

Decay rates of the radioactive fallout are the same for any size nuclear device.

However, the amount of fallout will vary based on the size of the device and its proximity to the ground. Therefore, it might be necessary for those in the areas with highest radiation levels to shelter for up to a month.

The heaviest fallout would be limited to the area at or downwind from the explosion and 80 per cent of the fallout would occur during the first 24 hours.

People in most of the areas that would be affected could be allowed to come out of shelter within a few days and, if necessary, evacuate to unaffected areas.

Keep listening to the radio and television for news about what to do, where to go and places to avoid.

Stay away from damaged areas. Stay away from areas marked "radiation hazard" or "HAZMAT".

Remember that radiation cannot be seen, smelled or otherwise detected by human senses.

Posted for fair use and above the 50/50 rule so that others can be informed and get prepared. This is a great list and instructions I was grateful to come across it.
