Abstract : The objectives of the study were to identify possible constraints on civil defense systems that might arise because of financial concerns of individual householders and to assess conceivable countermeasures to the constraints identified. The householder financial concerns of relevance were found to be those associated with continuity of employment and wages, adequate transportation for commuting and shopping, adequate banking and check clearing services, availability of credit, and survival of financial records. The civil defense systems conceivably affected by householder financial concerns were evacuation and relocation, emergency local transportation, banking services, protection of financial records, communications, and policies and controls for financial institutions.
