Abstract : A detailed study of the communications requirements to support the Movement-to-Shelter (MTS) concept is made. The city of New Orleans and the nuclear attack postulated in the Five City Study are used as a situation model. These requirements embrace communications between the central city and the MTS area, within the MTS area, between the MTS area and the adjacent communities and counties, and people-to-people civil defense communications. The additional communications, including alternative configurations needed to implement the MTS concept are tabulated in terms of telephone, radio facilities, reserve power supplies, and personnel. The added requirements under the MTS concept are compared with those under the current in-city shelter concept, and conclusions and recommendations concerning the magnitude and costs of the increased needs are stated.
