What To Do in a Gas Attack

About this item

Description This film explains what war gas is, how it is used by the enemy, and how simple household items, such as bicarbonate of soda and bleaching solution, may be used to prevent casualties. It is explained that gas may not destroy cities the same way bombs do but rather its intended purpose “is to spread fear and panic, to destroy our morale, and cripple our war production.” Viewers are told that their best form of defense is to be prepared and know what to do after an attack.
