W. Leslie Smith,
President
CD Director
Explains Plan
For Surveys
Mr. John Moses, Civil De
fense Director of Lexington,
said today that the Depart
ment of Defense, U. S. Corps
of Engineers and Mississippi
Civil Defense Council, working
through the local Civil Defen
se organization, is moving in
to the second part of the en
gineering survey of all exist
ing buildings in our communi
ty which can be utilized in
the event of war to provide
protection from radioactive
fallout for the people of our
community. Architect - engi
neers have completed the ini
tial examination of all build
ings in the state that have
a protection factor of 20 to -
that would accomodate 50 or
more persons.
Mr. Moses stated that he is
calling upon designated build
ing owners that have struct
ures that are determined to
be desirable for Civil Defense
purposes to cooperate with the
State and Federal Shelter Pro
gram. The building owners
were requested to allow engi
neers to make a study of their
buildings to determine their
fallout protection and to re
commend physicial changes
which possibly would be eligi
ble for a federal grant. Civil
Defense authorities will stock
with provisions those build
ings that possess a 100 pro
tection factor. The provisions
that will be stored locally in
qualifying buildings will con
sist of radiological detection
instruments, emergency medi
cal supplies, water containers
and canned wheat wafers.
Our Civil Defense Director
further stated that there
would be no expense whatso
ever to the building owner and
that there would be no liabili
ty for the care, protection or
maintenance of the provisions
by the individual building
owner.
Inasmuch as this is a very
high priority program in
which all of our citizens are
expected to cooperate for the
common good of the State,
it is pointed out that the cur
rent shelter survey is the pre
lude to an expanded compre
hensive program of Civil De
fense in Mississippi and the
Country.
