Sweden Publishes War Precaution Pamphlets
Is a storm coming? The Scandinavian nation’s government is handing out an updated manual instructing citizens how to cope in times of crisis including war, terrorism, cyberattacks and climate change. First released during World War II, then again in the 1980s, the new version — called “If Crisis or War Comes” — guides Swedes on securing food, water and shelter, and educates them about an array of warning signals and the threat of fake news. The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency is distributing the 20-page pamphlet to all of the country’s 4.8 million households.
