Supplies to Stock for Nuclear Attack
Emergency supplies you'll need following a nuclear attack

What things will you need after a nuclear attack or accident?
Are you ready for a nuclear attack? No one is every really ready
for that, but it used to be quite mainstream to prepare for nuclear

Following the detonation of the first nuclear atomic bomb in 1945,
Americans prepared. They gathered necessary supplies and held
drills. With so much uncertainty regarding the nuclear capabilities
of North Korea and the American response, isn't it wise to stock
up on supplies to prepare for a nuclear attack?

A nuke blast could contaminate air, water and ground surfaces in
a circumference miles around. You'll need supplies to bug in if you
survive the initial blast.

Radiation Protection Supplies
If a nuclear bomb explodes, these are the top emergency supplies
you will need to survive...

#1: Radiation Detection.
Many preppers don't realize you an carry a very lightweight
radiation detection that's very inexpensive when compared to a
Geiger counter, and with no batteries or calibration needed. You
an get a small credit card sized device or one the size of a
postage stamp to help you detect radiation:

  • Radiation detector card (military grade). Pictured
    immediate right in yellow, RADtriage50 card is an acute dose
    monitor card about the size of credit card that you can keep
    in your wallet, as part of radiation supplies, in your bugout
    bag, or at the office ~ just about anywhere! (Avoid
    prolonged exposure to heat.) Some people keep this card in
    Mylar in the refrigerator to make it last longer. I can be
    frozen for at least 10 years to extend shelf life. The sensor
    is always active and will develop color if exposed to gammaX-
    ray. Match the sensor's color with the adjacent bars
    underfluorescent light to estimate the does. Tested and
    approved by DHS, this credit card size personal radiation
    detector fits in a wallet or badge holder and instantly
    detects nuclear and “dirty bomb” type radiation.

  • RADSticker. Tuck a RADSticker in your wallet or bugout bag
    as everyday carry. This postage stamp-sized dosimeter,
    pictured right, becomes darker as it is exposed to radiation.
    Stick it onto the back of your driver's license or anything you
    keep close, for any future radiation emergency. RADSticker
    provides wearers with timely personal radiation exposure
    information in an event of an accident at a nuclear power
    plant or a nuclear or dirty bomb explosion. Information is
    key: and the objective of this low-cost RADSticker is to
    quickly determine if you need to seek medical treatment and
    this knowledge will also minimize the panic.

The beauty of this yellow card and sticker also is that they are
impervious to an EMP Bomb (ElectroMagnetic pulse) because it
requires no batteries.

#2: iOSAT "Nukepills" (KI).
iOASAT is a package of potassium Iodide pills that can help your
thyroid so  you don't get thyroid cancer. The best time to take
"Nukepills" are 2-3 hours following a radioactive event. You'll
need at least one packet of iOSAT anti-radiation tablets for every
member of the family or group for which you are prepping. These
special pills protect your thyroid and your life. They simply aren't
available at the drugstore. Get them online now well before you
need them and
Learn more about iOSAT.

#3: Radiacwash towelettes.
If you survive the initial blast of a nuclear event, radioactive
fallout will be your biggest danger. Radiacwash™ Towelettes are
individually packaged paper towels saturated in a special
Radiacwash™ solution to help you combat the effects of a nuclear
catastrophe. Just remove the towelette from the foil packet, scrub
hands thoroughly and wash the contamination away with running

If fallout occurs you will need to decontaminate yourself and
others. It's not possible to completely decontaminate following a
nuclear bomb or accident; however you can help your body remove
the toxins over the days, weeks, months and years following the
cataclysmic event using Radiacwash, and here's how:
  • If you've been outside, take off your clothes and leave them
    outside or in a plastic bag.
  • Next, immediately use Radiacwash towelettes to allow you
    to safely wipe away radiocontamination from hands, arms,
    neck and small objects.
  • After you've removed most of the contamination, use running
    water to allow the rest to flow off the skin.
  • Do not scrub or scratch the skin.
  • Carefully dispose of the Radiacwash towellettes in a special
    contamination bag.

Radiacwash towelettes allow you to safely wipe away radioactive
contamination. A CIA report on Terrorist Chemcial Biological
Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Materials and Effects says
“Radiacwash works better than plain soap and water on metal
isotopes and isotopes bound to metals.”

Radiacwash are affordable especially when compared to
commercial use decontamination agents, such as
laboratory detergent. Suitable for Radioactive Decontamination
Mucasol is bacteriostatic and suitable for radioactive
decontamination, but will cost you around $200 for a two-liter
bottle. You can get a pack of 20 towelettes for around $18.95 and
free shipping on eligible orders.

Best of all, Radiacwash has a pH of 5, contains no phosphates,
chromates, silicates, enzymes, borates, aluminates, carbonates,
halids and inert fillers that can interfere with sensitive analytical
procedures. Radiacwash is a non-alkaline, non-corrosive, and
biodegradable germicidal.
Radiacwash is easy. It's cheap and it
keeps your family safe.

#4: Radiation water filter.
Tap water will run for some time following a nuclear catastrophe
and it will be okay to drink for a period of time, but you should
filter it or drink bottled water. Boiling tap water does not get rid
of radioactive materials, so you will need to get a radiological
water filtration system. The
Seychelle water pitcher, pictured
right, is the only water filter on the market that provides up to
100% reduction of known radiological contaminants.

  • Seychelle water filter (pitcher). The Seychelle water pitcher
    removes 100% of major nuclear contaminants from drinking
    water, including removing 100% of gross beta, radium 226,
    uranium, cesium 137, strontium, plutonium, radioactive
    iodine B1, and radon 222. Essential for a variety of
    emergencies, including earthquakes, floods, fires and
    radiological catastrophes! Protects your family with clean,
    safe drinking water in the event of a radiological emergency.

  • Seychelle personal water filter. For emergency
    preparedness, when survival is threatened by disaster, you
    can depend on the Seychelle personal water filter. It
    removes up to 99.99% of contaminants and pollutants found
    in fresh water supplies including Aesthetics such as chlorine,
    Sediment and dirt; Chemicals (VOC's) such as DDT, MTBE,
    Benzene, Chloroforms (THM's); Dissolved Solids (heavy
    metals) such as Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, Copper, Zinc,
    Aluminum, Chromium 6 and up to 99.9% of Biologicals
    (pathogens) such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium. BPA Free
    and Will Not Leach.

#5: NOAA weather radio.
Every prepper should own a survival radio ~ it is your lifeline to
the outside world. You'll need to know when it's safe to leave and
other important and life-saving information. Hopefully you already
have an
NOAA weather radio. If not, now's the time to get one or
to check the status of your radio. It's that important. See if you
can tune in for information.

#6: Stock up on duct tape and plastic sheeting.

  • Plastic sheeting. With plastic sheeting and duct tape you
    can quickly seal up a room to help insulate it from nuclear
    fallout particles. Plastic sheeting is quite useful also for

#7: HEPA filter.
Some of the best HEPA filters on the market were developed out
of the need for effective filtration of radioactive particulates. Most
HEPA filters include anti-static electricity and radiation protection.

HEPA filter can help remove contaminants, including the
radioactive fallout; however you may need an alternative power
supply. Most HEPA filters will not filter out gases or vapors. They
also have limited lifespans and are fragile, but they could help
you in a radiation emergency.

#8: Personal Protective Gear
Unfortunately, there is "no practical personal protective
equipment (PPE) to protect First Responders against externally
penetrating gamma radiation," according to OSHA.

Go ahead and put away your tinfoil hats, but put on your anti-
radiation underwear! We found plenty of protective gear available
for the clever prepper, some expensive and some entertaining

#9: Geiger Counter.
OSHA recommends monitoring devices as a means of ensuring
first responders don't enter excessive areas of gamma radiation.

geiger counter will help you detect radiation and is relatively
easy to use, though it's not for everyone. The RADEX RD1212
Advanced Radiation Detector /
Geiger Counter with Online
Software, pictured immediate right in blue, is an affordable
radiation detection solution in the $200 range, when compared to
more expensive radiation detectors, running in the $500-$600

#10: NBC gas mask.
Of course, no nuke supply list would be compete without a gas
mask ~ and not just any gas mask, you'll need an NBC gas mask
for nuclear, biological and chemical protection. Don't have a gas
Before you buy a gas mask, read this.

Can't afford a gas mask? An
N95 Particulate face mask can block
inhalation of certain alpha and low-energy beta particles, and
certainly is better than nothing at all. Such masks are intended
for everyday protection from contaminated or toxic air, particles,
allergens, pollen, pet hair and dander, mold spores, leaves, and
grass clippings. They are suitalbe for use with other personal
protective equipment / PPE such as safety helmets, hard hats,
glasses, ear muffs, goggles other eyewear.

More Nuke Supplies
Add to your list of prepper products to stockpile for nuclear
radiation emergencies, the following...

  • Sand bags. Sand bags are extremely useful for fortifying
    your bug in location. Not only will sand bags provide a
    measure of protection against gunshots, but sand is an
    excellent fortification against nuclear threats. As well,
    sandbags provide flood protection, traffic control, erosion
    control, and as ballast.

  • Supplies for secondary fires. You should also expect
    secondary fires that come after the initial heat pulse and
    destruction. While you won't alone be able to put out large
    fires, you can do a few things to protect yourself against
    small fires.

  • Wrench for utilities. You'll need a wrench or pliers to turn
    off utilities.

  • Emergency foods . A basic supply of food is a absolute must
    for an emergency situation, but even more important in a
    radiation emergency, when you may not be able to leave
    your home. Hopefully you ave a nice supply of food for your
    prepper's pantry, but if not you should make this a top
    priority. Check our daily deals page food storage savings.

Now you've tucked some knowledge about
nuclear fallout safety
and things you should put in your emergency kit.

Did you know that a person can transport a small
nuclear device?
These improvised nuclear devices are rarely discussed by
mainstream media. While they are less destructive, they are an
additional threat that most people are unaware. Modern preppers
should plan for a nuclear attack, the way the generations before
prepared in the atomic age.

Keep educated, teach kids.
Mothers in the cold war worried most that their children would
stick out their tongues for the snowflakes. Following their lead,
instruct children about the seasons. If it's snowing during summer
break, kids need to head inside.

Get more information about how to survive a nuclear war or
catastrophe. Get manuals and supplies. Teach your kids the
basics the way they did in the 1950s.
