Disaster and WMD Defence Guide/Shelter Location

You should primaly take shelter in a CP shelter. If you don't have this option, in case of nuclear leak take cover in an under ground cellar space or in case of a gas leak you should (depending on the gas) take cover in the top floor (don't go to the attic, because attics usually present a lot of "blocking" which will be handled later,

Radioactivity weakens


When it goes through material For example 35 cm (14inches) of concrete reduces the radiation levels to 1:50

Name 1:50 1:100
Concrete 35 cm Concrete 45 cm
Brick 50 cm Brick 60 cm
Solid earth 55 cm Solid earth 70 cm

When the distance to the radiating particles grows, half of the radiation is received when a person is within 8 meter radius of the source of radiation.
