Public Safety 101: How to Prepare Your Farm for Nuclear Attack

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

This series of TV commercials, produced by the U.S. Civil Defense office in 1965, uses puppets to illustrate how to prepare for a nuclear attack in a rural area -- from protecting livestock to stockpiling canned goods. While FEMA conducts a nationwide test of its Emergency Alert System on November 9, the Atlantic Video channel brings you a selection of archival films about safety through the ages.
