Conclusions

Radiation dispersal devices could cause significant contamination with low levels of radiation, but would result in few if any radiation casualties.

Much of the radiation dispersal device’s impact will depend on how much we over-react to the dangers of radiation.

A nuclear weapon would result in substantial casualties and confusion from many effects, with radiation injury being the dominant one in the fallout region.

In a fallout scenario, wise actions on sheltering/evacuation will save thousands of lives.

You can prepare by knowing (and teaching) the facts about radiation, and having a plan about what to do in a radiation emergency—a good place to start is www.ready.gov.
