The regulation proposes in any case to think in advance the behavior plan family and connect with relatives, find out where there are fallout shelters. If no such information, you should first think about where you can hide. Suitable basement, Central room without Windows on the middle floors of tall buildings.
If the attack was warned in advance, it is best to hide under the earth as deep as possible. Otherwise, for protection against radioactive particles is recommended to choose the nearest building of brick or concrete. In the shelter will have to spend at least a day. All this time, it is possible to keep track of official information and not to leave the shelter as long as possible, not inform the authorities.
Much worse if to hide from the explosion no time and he caught you on the street. The main recommendation — do not look at the flash, something to hide, to lie on the ground and cover your head. The blast wave can reach you in 30 seconds or more.
Even if the epicenter of a nuclear explosion is far away, you should still find shelter, the radioactive particles will be blown for hundreds of miles.

The skin is not recommended to RUB and comb. Hair conditioner is not recommended.
Radiation is dangerous because its presence cannot be detected. Perhaps in the shelter will have to spend about a month after a nuclear explosion — it all depends on the bomb and it exploded. However, the majority will be able to leave the asylum before. Worst of all is the situation in the area of the explosion and in those places where the wind blew.
