Abstract : The Civil Defense Research Staff of the University of Georgia conducted twelve simulated community shelter occupancy tests during the period 1962-67. The present report is a synthesis of findings of the large-group studies, ranging in numbers of participants from 160-1,000 persons, and involving men, women, and children confined for periods varying from one day to one week. Implications for the National Shelter Program are discussed, as well as recommendations for future research. (Author)
