In case of nuke, run around the corner

It’s quite disturbing to read that our Department of Homeland Security’s web site Ready.gov has such terrible advice on disaster response.

FAS, the Federation of American Scientists analyzed ready.gov and found inadequate information, confusing info, and advice that was just plain wrong. See critique here.

One of the funniest/stupidest things I saw on ready.gov was this nuclear response guide. Their advice seems to be: if you are in the neighborhood of a nuclear blast, run around the corner and get away from it.
