The Emergency Management Dept. for New York City dropped a PSA on Monday that tells residents what to do in the case of a nuclear attack.
The 1.5-minute spot gives viewers three steps to follow to mitigate their exposure to radioactive material.
1. Get Inside
2. Stay Inside
3. Stay Tuned
There are a few sub-steps like, get inside a building and make sure all doors and windows are closed, as well as if you were “outside after the blast, get clean immediately,” and “remove and bag all outer clothing, to keep radioactive dust or ash away from your body.”
Here’s the full breakdown:
“While the likelihood of a nuclear weapon incident occurring in/near New York City is very low, it is important New Yorkers know the steps to stay safe,” the city’s Emergency Management Department said in a news release. “The new PSA encourages New Yorkers to take key, simple steps in the event of such an incident.”
Zach Iscol, the commissioner for the department, added, “As the threat landscape continues to evolve, it is important that New Yorkers know we are preparing for any imminent threats and are providing them with the resources they need to stay safe and informed.”
Does anyone else find it weird that the government launched this PSA, now? What gives? Do they know something we don’t???
On the heels of a global pandemic are we headed toward nuclear war? Is it really an “imminent threat”?
While we ponder those questions here is the TRUTH on the matter. You cannot rely on the government to help you and your family during a crisis. Actually, that’s understating the situation. When things go truly pear-shaped, the only thing you can count on is that Big Brother will make things worse.
Remember during COVID when the lockdown was two weeks to slow the spread? Or when our overlords shuttered gun stores and instructed cops to stop arresting hardened criminals? Or when we were bullied into taking a vaccine that was all but guaranteed to “stop transmission and infection…”
Yeah, by and large, gov’t not only doesn’t help, it makes the situation worse. Which means you need to be prepared. If you haven’t given any serious consideration on how to survive a nuclear attack now’s the time. Don’t let a 1.5-minute PSA from NYC Emergency Management be your only reference point.
