A Radiological Dispersion Device (RDD) is also known as a “dirty bomb” or a “dirty nuke”, and if one goes off in your home town, you will want to have an emergency urban survival plan in place to protect you and your loved ones. An RDD is a form of explosive device that not only results in a deadly blast, but it is also packed with other radioactive materials that are spewed throughout the blasting radius.
In the event of a Nuclear Attack, a properly stocked emergency urban survival kit with NBC gear plus a good understanding of nuclear weapons and their effects may be the only thing that saves your life. In these times of political uncertainty, recent events such as the 911 Attacks on New York and the bombing at the Boston Marathon are driving home the point that nuclear attacks are becoming an ever increasing possibility. There’s also the threat of North Korea and it’s unpredictable leader Kim Jong Un.
The partial nuclear meltdown in Fukushima has made it very clear that nuclear facilities are NOT 100% safe. Approximately 3 million people within the USA live within 10 miles of a nuclear power plant and if you’re one of them, it would be wise to make preparations for the small chance that you may one day experience a nuclear emergency. Please consider that in the event of a global catastrophe, or large nationwide disaster that the resources used to maintain nuclear facilities will be at jeopardy, which could lead to complete meltdowns of facilities. If you’re an urban survivalist preparing for a TEOTWAWKI event, you must consider that there are over 400 nuclear power plants on the planet and therefore protecting you and your family from radiation should be a top priority.
A nuclear weapon is one of mankind’s most dangerous weapons. A nuclear blast is characterized by an explosion on intense light, heat, a destructive wave of pressure, and an immense release of radioactive energy that can contaminate the surrounding area. A nuclear blast also releases an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) that can destroy electronic devices for miles around (1000s of miles if detonated high enough). It’s a well-known fact that hundreds of lbs. of weapons grade plutonium has been lost or sold by the Russian army and is now most likely in the hands of terrorists and rogue nations like North Korea. Many experts in the intelligence community are predicting with 99% certainty that a nuclear weapon will be used in America within our lifetimes! With the escalating tension between North Korea and the West, now is the time to prepare for a nuclear weapon being used in America!
