Dirty Bomb Public Awareness Campaign this summer.


www.nationaldefensemagazine.org

Detlof von Winterfeldt, director of the Center of Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events (CREATE), told National Defense.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 directed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to oversee a dirty bomb public awareness campaign. The DNDO is leading the group that is crafting the message, Oxford said. He expected the interagency group to wrap up its work by the end of the summer.

This will come three years after the law was passed, and six years after the Padilla case made officials aware that dirty bombs were on al-Qaida’s menu.

“We’re not sure public awareness will work, but we at least need to tell people early and often through local officials” about the effects of dirty bombs, he said.

Whoops, this was suppose to go into the ATS breaking news forum.
Oh well.


FYI

It's been in the works for years.

Look for public awareness ads on TV and in large cities this summer. This is your warning.

No need to panic

the fortunate part about dirty bombs is the low yeild they have (least to my understanding) basicly a dirty bomb is a conventional bomb that spews radioactive mess all over the place. So from what I understand they don't produce a nuclear explosion but a conventional one that spreads radioactive gunk over an area.

good thing they keep us informed right away about stuff right?
