Prelinger Archives
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
If war gas is used by the enemy against the civilian population its primary purpose will be to cause fear and panic. This Prelinger Archives film illustrates forms of gas attack as it explains how common sense and simple household items such as bicarbonate of soda and bleaching solution may be employed to prevent or minimize injury. The urgent yet matter-of-fact narration adds a chilling element. Approved by the U.S. Office of Civilian Defense and endorsed by the Clorox Chemical Co. Filmedia Corp.
