Necessary Nuclear Attack Precautions
A nuclear device can range from a weapon carried by an intercontinental missile launched by a hostile nation or a terrorist organization, to a small portable nuclear device transported by an individual. All nuclear devices cause deadly effects when exploded, including blinding light, intense heat (thermal radiation), blast shock-wave, initial nuclear radiation, fires started by the heat pulse and secondary fires caused by the destruction.
    So in summary, a nuclear explosion has a triple effect sequence – in rapid succession: – the flash; the shock wave; and the radiation.
Therefore in any country, which is at any risk whatsoever of this threat, it is important, to the extent of our ability, to take all appropriate precautions!
1. The Flash  
  The flash of a nuclear explosion, if within effective range, will set fire to anything flammable.  
To help prevent this, all external windows need to be covered internally by reflective aluminium foil,
to reflect the flash and help prevent your furniture from bursting into flame.
2. The Shock Wave  
The shock wave follows immediately and will tend to flatten anything in its path. If your home has an underground cellar, that is the best option, so then stock it with emergency supplies, and, if possible,
give it a second entrance/exit, in case the first collapses.
3. The Radiation  

Potassium Iodide
and its
commercial availability
This requires a similar shelter to the shock wave, and its effect is longer term but also lethal.
If your cellar is not deep enough, large sand-bags can also help protect,
so stock up on non-perishable food, water, and emergency medical supplies
so that you do not need to go outside for at least 48-hours,
(potassium iodide pills help protect you from cancer caused by radiation exposure)
and have a battery powered radio with extra batteries and cell phone in order to know what is happening.
in 1954 following an American nuclear bomb test in the Pacific, shifting winds blew radioactive fallout in an unexpected direction, contaminating two small atolls 150 miles away. Although residents were quickly evacuated, it was too late. Within 20 years, most of the island’s adult population, and all of its children, had developed some form of thyroid disease or cancer. By 1957, scientists had concluded that potassium iodide represented an ideal thyroid blocking agent. This material had been used for years in other therapies, was known to be extremely safe, inexpensive, had a long shelf life, and could prevent 99% of the radioactive iodine in fallout from being absorbed.
(Potassium iodide's (KI) value as a radiation protective (thyroid blocking) agent was demonstrated following the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster in Ukraine in April, 1986, a saturated solution of potassium iodide (SSKI) was administered to 10.5 million children and 7 million adults in Poland as a preventative measure against accumulation of radioactive Iodine in the thyroid gland).
There is
a serious rumour circulating at the moment that the large international banks are in so much debt that it is beyond any national governments' capacity to bail them out, and so —
This war will have
no front-line
is being seen in some quarters of U.S. government as a way out of the international financial crisis and
it is in Russia's financial interest to seriously disrupt international crude oil supplies to escalate the price.
Please Note:
Concerning being prepared for a possible nuclear attack, the past has a lot to teach us and also to encourage us with.
On August
6, 1945 (8:15 AM), when the United States bombed the Japanese city of Hiroshima (killing about 100,000 civilians, if those who died later of its radiation poisoning are also included, as they should be), and Nagasaki on the 9th (killing more than 73,000),
Tsutomu Yamaguchi, a resident of Nagasaki, was visiting Hiroshima.
Russia's new
Sarmat Nuclear Missile
Yamaguchi is injured in the Hiroshima nuclear blast, but never-the-less he returns home to Nagasaki, where he returns to work on the morning of August 9th, 1945 – just in time to experience the second American atomic bomb attack on a civilian target.
Amazingly, Yamaguchi lives for many years after the war, passing away in 2010, and may be considered the most fortunate man in history,
being the only known survivor of two nuclear attacks.
So, let's not be passive or defeatist in any sense when facing the possibility of such a terrible situation.
The Swedish
government is looking into expanding its existing network of nuclear fallout shelters. Swedish officials confirmed on Friday November 3, 2017, that the proposed changes are still under consideration by the government. Sweden already has 65,000 shelters, which would provide space for up to 7 million people, but that leaves an estimated 3 million inhabitants without protection. Sweden’s new shelter locations indicate that at least some of the concerns are connected to Russia. One of the regions where most new shelters are expected to be constructed in the coming years is the island of Gotland,
where military defenses were recently expanded with the declared aim of stopping a possible Russian invasion.
As with the Dutch government below, the Swedish government's alert action is commendable
At least
one European country takes the risk of a nuclear war even more seriously: Switzerland may have fewer citizens than Sweden, but it has still built about four times the number of nuclear shelters — easily enough for the country’s entire population and then some. In Switzerland all houses above a certain size must include shelters in the basement, putting the financial burden on the citizens themselves. That rule was abolished in 2011 by the Swiss parliament, but reintroduced months later after the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan.
Please note:
Trump's win as US president, if he does what he has said, means more room for Russian President Putin to manoeuvre in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Eastern Mediterranean (where Russia is building a permanent naval base on the Syrian coast at Tartus). Russia needs an oil price of about $100 a barrel, so cutting oil supplies to Europe via Suez and the Cape sea route, so that Europe is more dependant on Russia's oil pipelines, is in Putin's direct interest.
Therefore, please take this into account in your forward thinking and prepare accordingly as you are able.
Vladimir Putin
moment of every day, the U.S. military and intelligence agencies have satellites in high-Earth orbit scouring the globe for anything amiss. The so-called early warning satellites are designed to identify within seconds the location of the launch site, the missile’s trajectory and its potential target. A constellation of school bus–sized satellites, known as the Defense Support Program, forms the backbone of the system. The spacecraft are armed with cutting-edge infrared sensors and instruments that operate at wide angles to detect heat signatures from missile plumes as they flash against Earth’s background.
combination of all this intelligence over a period of seconds or minutes would allow enable the U.S. government to triangulate the point of launch and track the trajectory of the missile, much of it under a method of spycraft known as measurement and signature intelligence. The information would be relayed to U.S. Forces Korea, headquartered in Seoul, and U.S. Pacific Command. A decision would be made on whether Americans were at-risk and if U.S. or allies should use missile defense systems to attempt to a shoot-down. That could take place on the Korean peninsula, where the U.S. recently deployed new systems, or by Japan’s missile defense network, or by American warships carrying interceptors operating in the Pacific Ocean.
Remember then:

For these "elect" are present on earth at this time, and not previously taken to Heaven in an escapist Rapture, as some continue to teach.
It is Christ's return, in terms of the God's Rainbow Covenant* with all humanity (Genesis 9:9-17), that stops Armageddon and so prevents the complete annihilation of the human race, for Jesus Himself personally said –
"...if those days had not been cut short,
no human being would be saved.
But for the sake of the elect
[the believers] those days will be cut short [interrupted]"
by  His  public return  in  power!

Matthew 24:22.
*Some have believed that this Covenanted-survival is 'limited' to simply preventing a Flood water 'repeat', but this is not true, for, although its wording is focussed on a non-repeat of the Flood in order to address the immediate natural paranoia of Noah's descendants, this covenant's continuance today as a feature of God's total rule, as represented in the rainbow around His throne in the book of Revelation, and Christ's words quoted above, indicate that it is not limited to the threat of water. This –
"Remember this, O LORD, how the enemy scoffs ...Have regard for the covenant,
for the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence
confirms in Psalm 74:20 that this applies beyond the threat of flooding!
The Bible clearly
says there is no
secret rapture!
As is frequently preached
particularly in the USA
"Then will appear in sky the sign of the Son of Man [Jesus], and then ALL the tribes of the earth will mourn,
and they will SEE the Son of Man
[Jesus] coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory.
And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect
from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other"
to  establish  His  rule  ... over  all  ... forever!
Christ's visible return
to bring His people into His resurrection to share His rule.

The Government of the Netherlands has taken the initiative, concerning people who may be at risk of a nuclear radiation catastrophe
as applied to those within 100km of a nuclear power plant, regarding the distribution of iodine tablets.
