Abstract : Relationships among nuclear weapons effects and civil defense operational system variables are summarized and used as a basis for deriving civil defense operational concepts, classification of hazard conditions, and systems of standard operation routines. Centered on protective shelter and on operations from the shelter, nine general classes of basic hazard conditions (BHC) for which different options of standard operating routines (SOR's) would be required are suggested. The nine classes are combinations of three possible levels of fallout hazards and three possible levels of physical damage for an area. (Author)
