I was given exemption from the entry exam due to my level of experience and became a member of the Institute of Civil defence giving me the appellation M.I.C.D. I remained a member between 1987 and 1992.
I was for 4 years a North Yorkshire County Council Community Defence Adviser and helped to provide the countries first ever emergency survey of a town to provide an action plan for that community, that town was Harrogate.
I also ran my own survival school in North Yorkshire in the 80's as well as a survival club for local kids.
I suspect that there are many of you who would wish to be able to protect their families should our enemies decide to explode a 'dirty bomb' on British soil for example.
We would I believe be extremely foolish to discount the potential for another Chernobyl or a Fuchishima type incident to occur affecting us here in the UK, Or to suffer our very own British nuclear accident as our nuclear plants grow ever older. This is not forgetting the dangers posed by the now developed long range nuclear weapons held by Iran and Syria, both of which I consider to be rogue states.
Experiencing a nuclear event is almost impossible for us to contemplate for obvious reasons, as it would be the end of the world. But would it?
We as a world have had hundreds of nuclear test explosions and we are still here, the world has not ended, life goes on does it not? The question is if you survived the initial effects of a nuclear explosion would you have the knowledge and the skills to survive the residual effects?
That is where my Complete Nuclear Survival Guide comes in, as by keeping it with you in your bug-out-bag, you will not only know where to find it but if you bug-out, so along goes this valuable survival information although as you will read later, I actually recommend bugging-in.
