The Rad Resilient City Project has answered a call to action. "In World at Risk, we expressly recommended the development of "a publicly available checklist of actions each level of government should take to prevent or ameliorate the consequences of WMD terrorism. Such a checklist could be used by citizens to hold their governments accountable for action or inaction." The Rad Resilient City Project has answered this call to action." Read endorsement from Senators Graham and Talent.

"The public plays a critical role on our nation’s emergency response team in every type of disaster, including an IND. Our goal is to empower Americans with information about the risks we face and the actions we can all take to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities. The release of your Fallout Preparedness Checklist aims to do just that–empower Americans with clear, actionable steps they can take in their communities to protect themselves.”

“UPMC has presented us all with a gift today–they’ve given us this preparedness checklist that can help us go back to our families, our communities, our businesses. The checklist that the Center for Biosecurity has developed is entirely consistent with everything that the federal interagency has been doing.”

“I am the one this checklist was made for. I’m that local government official, that staffer, that manager, that analyst, that emergency manager, who is going to be directed by the mayor, or the city manager, or the police chief, or fire chief  to take these words and turn them into action in the field. This checklist was developed with the end user in mind, it’s simple, it’s easy to read and understand, and, most importantly, it is easy to implement…it helps local government leverage the community involvement and the systems we already have in place. I'm proud to be associated with this project.”

The Rad Resilient City Initiative “is something that will only help us in the long term to foster, to nurture, to cajole, those conversations that have to take place.”
