In a meak attack, or where there is Insufficient warning for evacuation, any shelter is tetter than no shelter. - 2 If you live far enough outside a target area' to be relatively safe from blast and fire, there is still a chance you will be subjected -to radioactive fallout from tie bomb cloud. .Even homes 150 miles or more downwind from major cities may lie in the possible fallout zone. S. Home «heltefs are also good safety In- furance against tornadoes and other types of natural disasters. The best protection against radioactive fallout is an outdoor shelter covered by at least three feet of earth, and with «. suitable device to filter out the dust, A basement shelter will afford good protection. Closing off window wells, exterior entrances, and banking exposed walls with earth will provide .additional safety insurance. In homes without basements, first-floor areas with the least exterior exposure--such as an interior bath, utility room, or hallway--should be selected. Outside doors and windows should be shielded as much as possible. A good safety measure against building collapse would be to build a lean-to shelter in the basement, or to have a strong table to duck under in the inside shelter area. Whenever possible, store your emergency food supply, first-aid kit, and other essentials in the shelter area. If you are in a fallout zone, you may have to stay in your shelter for some time--except for short periods--until radioactivity on the outside dies away. Civil Defense 'authorities will'notify you when it is safe to come out. If you think you hav» some of the .radioactive dust on you, take no chances--remove your outer clothing and bathe exposed parts Immediately, using strong soap if possible.
