Nuclear Warfare Infographic Treasure Chest

North Korea, Russia, Pakistan, and maybe even Iran; the threat of nuclear war is real, and all preppers need to know the basics of what to do when and if an SHTF atomic accident occurs.  First of all, unless you are in the center of the blast, you can survive a nuclear explosion. However, you must be prepared and not what to in the aftermath of the blast. These infographics, concerning nuclear warfare and radioactive blasts, will help direct you in the right direction.   

This list will contain the following:

  • The different types of radioactive accidents that may occur. 
  • What to do if you or a loved one is a victim of a nuclear incident. 

 

Most Likely Radio Active Disasters

The following will describe, other than a traditional nuclear accident (like a meltdown), the most likely way that you could encounter a nuclear disaster, which is either through terrorism, conventional warfare, or accident.       In order, it will address the following:

  • Nuclear Weapon
  • Improvised Nuclear Devise
  • Radiological Exposure Devise
  • Transportation Accident

 

Nuclear Weapon

Unfortunately, with North Korea, Russia, and other hostile countries, the threat of nuclear armageddon is still present.  This infograph helps remind you of this unfortunate reality.

IMPROVISED NUCLEAR DEVICE

Radiological Exposure Devise (“RED”)

 

TRANSPORTATION ACCIDENTS

This is likely to be the most likely way, at least in the United States, where you’ll be most likely to encounter radiation.  For example, in my home state Nevada, radioactive materials were transported to the nuclear test site.

Radiation Treatment

First of all, it should go without saying, if you are exposed to unhealthy amounts of radiation, you need to get medical attention ASAP.  Other than, if safely possible, a shower, get medical help. But, if you can’t see a Doctor or if it is a truly SHTF moment, try to take these steps.

CONCLUSION

What also needs to be mentioned is that your attitude can be the reason for either survival or death.   First of all, if you are not in the epicenter where a nuclear incident has occurred you can survive.  The 1986 disaster in Chernobyl is a good example of how a nuclear accident is not as hopeless as people near the accident survived.   But, if you are not prepared, panic or react impulsively your chances of survival will lessen.  Above all, apply common sense, take cover as well as you can, and seek medical help ASAP.
