Advanced Preparedness: Hardened underground nuclear blast shelter

By Tim Gamble

The American Civil Defense Association (TACDA) recently released a video lecture entitled "Learn how to design and build a hardened underground nuclear blast shelter." The 1 hour 15 minute video features Sharon Packer, who "has been on the board of directors for TACDA for over 20 years. She has a bachelors degree in mathematics, a minor in physics, and a master's degree in nuclear engineering. She is an expert in nuclear weapons effects, shelter design, and civil defense."

From TACDA: "The American Civil Defense Association (TACDA) educates Americans how to prepare for and survive disasters through civil defense concepts and techniques. Learn from experts from our 60 year old non-profit, non-political organization that teach all aspects of civil defense. What is civil defense? It is the process of the civilian population to take care of disasters and emergencies in their area before government help arrives. Many countries in the world have trained their citizens in civil defense and they know exactly what to do in catastrophic situations. Our citizens in America are grossly unprepared. Join us and learn the basics of civil defense, then share your knowledge with others. Together we are stronger! TACDA is an individual entity run by volunteers and is not associated with the US Federal Government. We do not discuss politics. We are for all people who wish to reduce fear, suffering, and panic from the effects of disasters, by preparing their homes, neighborhoods, and communities for unexpected emergencies."
