If Fukushima has taught us anything, it’s that you never do know when nuclear disaster can strike, and just how many people will be affected. Five years later, the Fukushima nuclear disaster is still impacting not only the immediate area, but potentially the whole West Coast of North America and possibly even the world.
Nuclear weapons are certainly a possibility for something any one of us might have to prepare for and survive, but just nuclear meltdowns at one of the nation’s hundreds of nuclear plants is a realistic prospect as well.
I thought this infographic from Backdoor Survival was great, and breaks down everything you’ll need, as well as important safety tips, for surviving a nuclear disaster. If you live close to a nuclear power plant, and even if you don’t, this is vital information that every prepper should be aware of.
