ISHPEMING — A survey of buildings in the Ishpeming area which might be used as a fallout shelters is being conducted by Edwin E. Brabetz, representative of the engineering firm of J.& B. Davermain Co., Grand Rapids. It is being made as a part of the national fallout shelter survey of the Office of Civil Defense. The first purpose of the survey, according to Brabetz, “is to evaluate all buildings, except single residences, to determine what degree of protection each may offer from radioactive fallout. Technical evaluation for fallout protection requires that the engineer enter the building to examine certain details of construction. These include, the thickness of the outside walls, the floor thickness, the ceiling or story heights, the type of roof and the number of window openings. The type of basement is important. However, adequate shelter protection may be found in areas above the basement level.”
