FEMA Encourages Survivors of a Nuclear Holocaust To Mask, Socially Distance
While the potential for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to spark a world-ending nuclear conflagration has knocked the pandemic off most frontpages, federal bureaucrats seem determined to prove that they can focus on two crises at once.
On Sunday, Based Politics‘ Brad Polumbo reported that the Federal Emergency Management’s (FEMA) ready.gov webpage for nuclear explosions has been updated to encourage people to mask and socially distance should they be hunkering in a bunker with members outside of their own households.
Should one hear a warning of an imminent nuclear attack, FEMA’s website encourages people to shelter inside the nearest building, preferably one made of brick or concrete, and as far away from windows as possible.
“When you have reached a safe place, try to maintain a distance of at least six feet between yourself and people who are not part of your household,” continues the agency’s webpage. “If possible, wear a mask if you’re sheltering with people who are not a part of your household.”
Ready.gov says people should stay inside for at least 24 hours after the bombs hit, during which time they should continue to socially distance and mask.
FEMA also has some helpful advice for those who survive the nuclear holocaust. Someone having a medical emergency is encouraged to contact 911. Provided the operator also survived, you are to tell them if you think you have COVID-19 and make sure to mask up before help arrives.
It’s said that following a nuclear war, the survivors might end up envying the dead.
