Hey ATS,


I've been thinking about putting together a survival kit for my family. Including things like: Gas masks, protective clothing, boots, gloves, etc. Mainly things that would be used for survival during a nuclear/bio hazard.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it is a good idea? What things do you think I should include?

Well... It's not a bad idea... But... You might want to get prepared for something more likely than nuclear issues.

Stock up on batteries,flashlights, candles, canned goods, water etc...

It is good to be prepared for emergencies, so I can't imagine anyone saying no.

Remember, NBC suits have a short life when in use and need to be changed when they get wet. The filters are the same, plus, the filter life varies according to the hazard you are in contact with. Additionally, if you think you are going to be in a comtaminated area, set up a decontam area along with showers and plenty of fullers earth.

for kids the Gas masks deal would just be frighting and unreasonable for them to wear for any length of time...
your time and money would be better spent on creating a safe room... one you can seal with plastic and duct tape.... put lots and lots of good green plants in there too... in your scenario working on a safe room where the whole family can gather and support each other... Is a family project you can all do together and should practice, as a family unit
