Guam posted a fact sheet for use “in case of emergency” to its social media pages and website in the wake of North Korea’s threat toward the island.
The fact sheet, titled “Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat,” is displayed prominently on the website of Guam’s Homeland Security Office of Civil Defense and its Facebook page.
The sheet encourages citizens to prepare before a missile strike by putting together an emergency supply kit and making a list of concrete shelters near their homes, workplaces and schools.
It also includes tips for citizens caught outside during a potential nuclear attack. It warns not to “look at the flash or fireball — it can blind you.” Citizens are cautioned to “lie flat on the ground and cover your head” and “remove your clothing to keep radioactive material from spreading.”
