The Transylvania Times -

How Prepared Are We?


January 18, 2018

Out of curiosity, after hearing about the false alarm regarding an incoming nuclear missile aimed at Hawaii, I checked out the Transylvania County Emergency Management website. Maybe I missed it, but I did not see anything regarding surviving a nuclear attack.

I checked out the federal government website, Basically the best advice I saw was, don’t run and stay inside with as many layers between you and radiation as possible. I wasn’t able to find anything out about stockpiles of food, water or medical supplies. I assume there are no such stockpiles.

I think it might be a good idea if the staff of The Transylvania Times researched this critical issue and publish a public service article telling readers about preparedness for a nuclear attack.
