You are both more current than me because I can't remember when I've seen a TV show or radio program interrupted for a test of the emergency broadcast system.

I wonder how many people know where the nearest Civil Defense fallout shelter is? I wonder if said shelters are properly equipped?

Some of this might be regional, in my area escaping fast moving, direction changing fires means phone calls, while people in other areas may know where a tornado shelter is.

Like you I really don’t know what the current big picture status is, but I do know that they still do a lot of testing, including TV and radio.

“I wonder how many people know where the nearest Civil Defense fallout shelter is?”

They were shut down/dismantled as part of the Cuban Missile Crisis deal, back in the 60’s. There are no more fallout shelters, but the Peaceniks were successful in teaching elementary school teachers that any bomb anywhere kills everyone anywhere.

Khrushchev thought our CD plans were warmongering so Kennedy agreed to shut them down.

That’s why there are so many CDV 17 Radiation Monitors on Ebay.

I got a lot of 30 gallon water drums long ago when the shelter project was shut down, and a partner got several tons of survival crackers, which he used to feed his animals with.
