This is the first American edition of this work, published in England. It consists of ten parts, describing the work of rescue parties, decontamination services, air raid wardens' service, structural defense, report of air raid damage, notes on training and exercise, gas detection, protection of windows, repair of respirators, and the care and custody of equipment. It is an official document issued by persons who have had the responsibility of caring for the population under air raid conditions. In the preparation of our own nation for civilian defense, this book will be invaluable.
