 In the event of nuclear fallout, there are immediate actions that need to be executed to give the best possible chance for survival. The most important thing you can worry about at first is to secure as much clean water as possible in clean containers to eliminate the risk of dying from dehydration in the near future. If you have a sufficient fallout shelter readily available, the next step is to secure a large amount of non-perishable food. If a shelter has not been construction,​ basic guidelines apply to the fabrication of one.  In the event of nuclear fallout, there are immediate actions that need to be executed to give the best possible chance for survival.

 The shelter needs as much mass as possible between where radioactive dust particles settle and the space. Layering walls of steel, concrete, earth and water would provide maximum protection, because gamma rays, the harmful radiation produced by nuclear fallout, are absorbed according to the amount of mass it has to travel through (Connor 1). If time is limited, a shelter can be constructed in a basement or other underground facility by piling thick metal or wooden barriers between yourself and possible entry points for radiation. Besides shelter and water, precautions must be taken to stay out of direct contact with radioactive materials. ​ The shelter needs as much mass as possible between where radioactive dust particles settle and the space.

-The longer a radioactive particle is in existence, the less harmful it is to someone coming in contact with it. This means that eventually areas away from the direct Ground Zero(s) will return to normal, and the fear of radiation poisoning will diminish+The longer a radioactive particle is in existence, the less harmful it is to someone coming in contact with it.

 Another likely event that could bring an end to the world as we know it is the zombie apocalypse. According to the Center for Disease Control, airborne bacteria or viruses could cause a disease similar to some popular types of Hollywood '​Zombies'​ (1).  Another likely event that could bring an end to the world as we know it is the zombie apocalypse.
