What must you compute to determine the optimum time of exit from a fallout area?
Average transmission factor divided by the time of evacuation
Evacuation transmission factor divided by the time of evacuation
The multiplication factor by the time of evacuation
To answer questions 5 and 6, refer to Figures S-1 and S-40 in the Supplemental Booklet.
A unit is in a fallout area but personnel are inside foxholes, Command Post Carriers M577, and
frame houses (basement). The unit will evacuate the location in the M577 Carriers, 1/4-ton
trucks, and on foot. What is the multiplication factor to be used to determine the optimum time
A unit is inside a fallout area and the commander has received permission to evacuate the unit to
an uncontaminated area. Personnel are in foxholes, basements of frame houses, and an
underground shelter being used as the command post. The evacuation will be made in 1/4-ton
and 2 1/2-ton trucks and will take 1 1/2 hours. The nuclear burst that caused the fallout occurred
at 0900 hours. At what time can the evacuation begin, so that personnel will receive the least
