How to survive a nuclear attack is at the top of the concerns of Americans amid the increasing war of words between North Korea and the United States.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will conduct a briefing January 16th “Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation,” to detail how to prepare for nuclear war.
“While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps,” states the excerpt from the CDC’s website.
The CDC also states that all the information is crucial to increase survival, “For instance, most people don’t realize that sheltering in place for at least 24 hours is crucial to saving lives and reducing exposure to radiation.”
War Of Words
As we know, the war of words of nuclear prowess between North Korean Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump has escalated.
President Trump tweeted Tuesday night, boasting his “nuclear button” is “much bigger & more powerful” than North Korea’s.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

World leaders have expressed their worry in recent days as the U.S. edges closer to nuclear war with North Korea.
Besides knowledge of how to survive a nuclear attack, having the correct gear and supplies is crucial. Survival experts recommend having a bugout bag and at least 2 -3 weeks of food and water to last for each person.
