New York City Mayor Backs Nuclear Attack Public Service Announcement


Living in the Big Apple? Here’s another reason to be concerned: The dropping of the Big One.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams stands firmly behind his decision to issue a public service announcement this week about what to do if a nuclear bomb should fall on the most populated city in America.

It is called a “great idea,”Mayor defends the video released by Office of Emergency Management, claiming it assists residents. “prepared”You can count on us for every eventuality.

Some city dwellers were left scratching their heads. Isn’t COVID-19, spiraling inflation, war in Ukraine, food shortages enough for us to worry about?

And exactly how does one prepare for nuclear annihilation?

“I’m a big believer in better safe than sorry. We’re going to always be proactive, not panic, but we’re going to be prepared,”He said.

This public service announcement provides some guidelines for New York City residents in case the five boroughs suddenly become radioactive.

Go inside. Shut all doors and windows. If you have one, go to the basement and keep your eyes open for media reports. If you were outdoors, remove your clothes and take a shower. Then, put your radioactive outerwear into a bag.

Christina Farrell, deputy commissioner of emergency management for the city, stated that the video wasn’t prompted or prompted by any particular threat. “There’s no overarching reason why this is the time we sent this out,” Farrell said Tuesday. “It’s just one tool in the toolbox to be prepared in the 21st century.”

The advice from the city could cause baby boomers to reminisce about the 1960s and seventies, when Cold War-era schoolchildren were buried under their desks in ducks-and-cover drills. 

“People have thanked us that we are approaching this topic,” Farrell said.
