Duck and cover

First all I want to say this video is a laughing matter a joke I watched this allowed my children to watch this and found it is idiotic to say the least. I think this movie or short video clip had a good idea but it was not portrayed as such. In this video I understand making it appealing to children but at not one point it did it state when or where to do this. Nor in this video did it tell you how to properly shield yourself it did how ever say to "cover" but my question is with what material should you "cover" yourself? After view the homework and reading the assignment I would only know what this video was referring to.

If a person can survive a nuclear war I do not think this will save them. In my training I have be taught to plan strategically, stock up of non-perishables, stock up on water, and make sure to have some sort of communication skills, Also have a stock what medical supplies you can obtain.

Also people spend more time preparing for things in and out of the war and currently men and women are not forced to serve there country it is a personal choice that they have made. In today's society we base our future movement based upon past facts and so that is how government are has gotten tighter on homeland security. Like we know to plan have ems personal on standby for the "Boston marathon" because "MCI" training says that terrorist will more than likely strike large crowds of people and it list several big events aka marathons. It's the past, present, and future to help shape our movements honestly its things like "911" that made the United States a safer place and I'm not condoning it. This incident was just a hard lesson and our government has changed tremendously since then. We have more focus on NIMS and MCI and that information is open to the public to view and learn how to better prepare themselves and families and
