Not surprising. I know this sounds weird but things are moving too slowly (not that I want things to move quickly or at all for that matter) and
people have enough time to freak out and jump to conclusions, buying up everything they can at the drop of a rumor. Not saying this is a bad thing,
but Something to definitely keep an eye on. I looked on Amazon and there are a few of them, but they are all digital models so cost a lot.
Something we're likely going to see though after this resolves is a large movement towards prep and survival technique learning.
Makes me wonder what other resources are being tapped out now.
Here some ideas though: Check local government to see if they have any civil defense counters leftover. If so volunteer to man them. I'm not
saying this will work, but likely they will need people to drive around and take readings, and most likely the Fire and Police personnel are going to
be kept focused on other preparations.
Another idea along the vein of local government contact is to relocate the fallout shelters in your community. The closer you are to the west coast
its likely that they would be receptive to any civilians volunteering to help check these out, find ways to stock them, and make the ready in case
they need to be used. If nothing else this will get you into the information flow and what they hear (but aren't allowed to reveal) and are able to
Don't limit yourself to these thoughts though, if you have a local university with a physics or nuclear engineering department, check with them to
see if there are any available reporting venues. I hope to contact mine tomorrow to see if they have any data or information sources that we haven't
been able to find.
