In the event of a terrorist attack, what should you do? Is it survivable? A newly released video contains the information everyone needs, presented in a way everyone can understand.
The New Civil Defense: Survival Basics, a 47-minute program packaged with a 32 page printed Guide Book is produced by Richardson Productions of Marietta, Ohio. This extensively researched program provides reliable, life-saving instruction which government agencies have failed to provideÂnamely, an easy-to-understand explanation of nuclear, biological and chemical agents and the appropriate responses.
"Typically, government and public service officials advise us that, in the event of a terror attack, people in authority will tell us what to do," says the video's director, Bob Richardson Jr., who, himself, appears in the program. "In reality no one will have time to wait for direction in a terror attack. TheyÂll have to act immediately. The program teaches audiences how to become self-reliant, how to protect themselves and the steps they need to take to be prepared.Â
Producer Ida Richardson explains, "We present basic information on the nature of nuclear, biological and chemical, or NBC, threats and most importantly, methods of self protection and survival. This information will greatly increase your odds of surviving an NBC attack.Â
Expedient barrier control, for exampleÂa survival technique explained in the videoÂis a street-wise approach to self protection, based on the reality that no one can carry a gas mask and full protection gear with them at all times. The program shows how you can adapt whatever you have available, from trash bags to cloth napkins, to protect your breathing and skin from toxic substances.
The program was filmed in a classroom setting involving students of various backgrounds and ages. One of the best aspects of the production is that it is presented in a very non-threatening manner with appropriate injections of humor. In addition to classroom instruction, it shows practical demonstrations, as well as interviews with knowledgeable instructors who are recognized leaders in survival training.
"Most publications and websites on the subject are too technical. They assume that people already have some knowledge of nuclear, biological and chemical threats." says Bob Richardson. "We define the technical language and jargon, and present the information with simple, basic steps that are easy to remember in an emergency situation."
Survival Basics, available on DVD or VHS is the best defense you can have in the atmosphere of ever rising terrorist threats. The program is packaged with a Guide Book that reinforces the information in the video along with check lists for putting together an emergency supply kit, a first aid kit, glossary, and a personal evacuation plan. The video is ideal for presentation to civic groups, emergency responders, churches, companies and as a family educational program.
