Emergency Preparedness

What did people do to stay safe during the Cold War?
The entrance to the Diefenbunker: Canada's Cold War Museum

What did people do to stay safe during the Cold War? To find out, students watch a primary source: the 1973 government-issued 11 Steps to Survival video. Students then look at emergency preparedness in today’s context, and end the program by building their own emergency survival kit.
