DoSS today issued our long-awaited two page emergency planning leaflet: What Can I Do in the Event of a Security Meltdown? - d0n7p4n1c (PDF). The leaflet is also available as two gif files. Page 1 and Page 2.
As I enter my Emergency Bunker, I feel I must praise the mindless dedication of the leaflet's authors and designers. Not only does it contain a lot of information on how to turn your home into a radiation, biological and chemical weapon-proof citadel using only a table, two doors and a roll of black bin liners (Osamas as we call them), it also carries complete schedules of the Emergency Broadcasting Service that my colleague David Blunkett is set to introduce as soon as the lights go out and we all get back into the Spirit of the Blitz.
Naturally, on just two A5 pages, we could not include all the information on preparedness we would have liked to, but we will remedy that as soon as the Commons Standing Committee on Lessons Learnt From The Apocalypse reports its conclusions less than a month after the event itself.
See you on the other side.
