There is no such thing as safe with nuclear bombs exploding all around you. Just accept the inevitable, stick your head between your legs, and kiss your ass goodbye
While there has been no indication that a nuclear explosion emergency is on the horizon, Ready wants to get you prepared, just in case.
“ Nuclear explosions can cause significant damage and casualties from blast, heat, and radiation but you can keep your family safe by knowing what to do and being prepared if it occurs,” said Ready via its website.
You can view some of the nuclear explosion emergency tips down below:
- Get inside the nearest building to avoid radiation, brick and concrete are the best.
- Remove contaminated clothing and wipe off or wash unprotected skin
- Go to the basement or middle of the building

Ready also mentions that nuclear devices can range from big to small. Some devices are portable and can be carried by a person, while others are much larger and take the form of deadly missiles.
