Are You Concerned About a Nuclear Threat?

With North Korea threatening the US and other Western countries, you may be wondering about our safety. Closer to home, an accident on March 31 at a nuclear plant in Arkansas resulted in one death. Even though the accident took place in a non-radiation area, it is almost impossible not to think of what could have been.

A nuclear emergency isn’t just stuff that movies are made of. It is a very real possibility that you should prepare for. Most people in the US live relatively close to a nuclear reactor site. Interestingly, 21% of states have no plans to monitor radiation if there is a disaster (according to a 2011 study), so that means you may have to rely on yourself completely.

Do you have a nuclear preparedness kit and a plan?

  1. I think I’m more concerned about a nuclear plant disaster rather than an outside nuclear attack. Either way you have to be prepared with a good quality terrorist kit and some emergency radios. I think these are the things most Americans are lacking in their “survival supplies”.
