Synopsis: Based on the assumption that a nuclear attack from the former Soviet Union was imminent, The Federal Civil Defense Administration put out this Cold War gem. A key point emphasized is that for you to survive a devastating nuclear attack, you must be always prepared.

The underlying message here is that like a really really bad tornado, if you remain calm, prepared and just "Face It!", you too can survive a nuclear attack of World War III, just around the corner.
