With the recent nuclear fallout concerns along the west coast, I thought I’d share some survival gear that would be helpful in a nuclear fallout situation.
Military Full NBC Chemical Suit – Desert Camo
Nuclear Anti Radiation Tablets KIO3 170 mg Potassium Iodate
U.S. Army Multiservice Tactics, Techniques, And Procedures For Nuclear, Biological, And Chemical (NBC) Protection: Field Manual Guide Book on CD-ROM

I agree that tools are very very important. I love this post. Don't forget though that no matter what tools you have don't forget other essentials such as food and water. Mostly water with a portable filter so you can purify what water source is available if its not too contaminated.
Those military NBC suits provide no defense against the radiation in fallout, and their porous fabric, pockets, and many folds, seams, and crevices will hold onto radioactive particles from the environment, necessitating the removal and disposal of the garment after just one use in contaminated conditions. The primary value of most military NBC suits is the inclusion of activated charcoal in the fabric, which will help to protect the user against chemical contamination.
If it's absolutely necessary to operate in an area contaminated with fallout, it's better to use non-porous outerwear such as a coated Tyvek coverall or a plastic isolation suit with rubber boots and gloves. It's also crucial to wear a filtered respirator (such as a gas mask) and a complete head covering, such as the integral head covers in some isolation suits or the hood provided with the respirator. After exposure, these suits can be washed to remove most of the contamination, but suits and respirators (or at least the respirator filters) must still be stored away from living areas unless shown to be free of radioactive contamination. Such suits are also cheaper, so it may be practical to dispose of the suit after each use.
i am focusing on the tools to help obtain all my nessesities each day. from a shovel, to a firearm.
