A Vintage Manual for Historic Study of Cold-War-Era Family and Personal Survival and Shelter Preparation

This deluxe, unabridged reprint Historic Reference Edition of the U.S. Office of Civil Defense 1966 manual Personal and Family Survival recounts a bygone time when Americans prepared for personal and family security. This historic study in emergency preparedness is worthwhile reading for anyone interested in cold-war history, the development and use of fallout shelters in the 1960-1970s, emergency survival, and having your family well prepared for when disaster strikes, be it a powerful storm, epidemic, local emergency, or other large-scale shutdown of daily economic operations.

Topics in the book include advice from the U.S. Federal Government during the 1960s on preparedness for the worst disasters. Included are chapters on information about the once-ubiquitous U.S. Office of Civil Defense and its purpose and operations, the threat of atomic weapons and radioactive fallout from the 1960s, how fallout shelters were constructed in the 1960s and how they were stocked with supplies, information about public fallout shelters of the day, how to prepare for fallout protection at the home and the farm, how to stock supplies for family and community emergency response, and how to recover from emergencies common to the 1960s, including weather-related disasters and nuclear weapons use.

This book makes a good gift for historic study for people interested in the cold-war history or old techniques and approaches for family and personal preparedness for emergencies from a bygone era. Although much of the information in this manual is outdated for the current day, some of its information may be useful for preparing for local disasters and keeping prepped for whatever comes your way.
