There were several things on the list, for making a 'Shelter Plan'. So, let's take this plan one step at a time, to share ideas. #1 Where would you take shelter for 14-21 days? For my family, if we are at home, it would have to be in our 'basement'. Which is really a 'finished basement, just under ground level. One of our 2 windows is the updated 'emergency window'. I would want some kind of 'black out' material for the windows, so that any kind of light I'm using would not show. A concern I have is that the door to this downstairs area is in our kitchen. Does 'fallout' enter my shelter area, from there, if I don't properly close/cover the other windows on my first floor? Another concern is security. If there is anyone at large, will we hear them in time? Securing the door to that basement shelter will need to be addressed.
