In a nuclear event, not being present in the blast or thermal radiation zones is essential. In areas of fallout or thick nuclear radiation, hunkering
down for a minimum of 13
days is necessary to allow the half-life cycle to render a radiated area safe.
Use KI and air filtration if available.
Shelter Material Minimums for Protection:
Iron and Steel- .7 inches
Concrete- 2.2 inches
Brick- 2.0 inches
Dirt- 3.3 inches
Ice- 6.8 inches
Wood- 8.8 inches
Snow- 20.3 inches
At the very least, keep a backpack with 3-4 days of rations, cold weather clothing and an extra dry set, personalized first aid, knife, lighters, gun,
survival handbook, good water source(purifier or tablets if needed), low profile tent, good sleeping bag, candles, and condoms.
When surviving in the winter, it is essential to stay dry, hydrated, and lucid. If you are being pursued, this task can become quite difficult if not
impossible. Always travel by night when escaping. If possible, shelter during the day and rest when it is the warmest and you are the most vulnerable
in daylight. In frozen areas, water can be ascertained by containing snow in a vessel and placing in between layers of clothing. Body heat will melt
you enough snow to survive. Fire can easily get you spotted. If that isn't a problem, build against a hill, stump, or rock that will reflect heat
Best first aid kit for the value on the market:
