When a house burns down, that house includes multiple ionizing radiation smoke detectors. That radioactive material is released into the air and goes downwind with the smoke, where people then inhale that radioactive material, which can and does cause lung cancer eventually. Fire departments are aware of this issue.
How many fire departments and communities are aware that in a clinic or hospital fire, radioactive source material may be released into the air inside of that facility and then into the community? How many of these facilities have training, drills and procedures in place to warn the local community of such radioactive ‘dirty bomb’ releases?
Ask your local city, county and state politicians.
Ask your local hospital administrator.
Ask your local doctors and nurses.
