"Civil defense is your business, and the time for civil defense is now."
Al Morgan introduces the program, a repeat of the fourth in a series of programs produced by James Fleming.
Fleming plays tape of New York citizens talking about civil defense. The current state of mind among citizens is passive towards the subject of civil defense and volunteering.
"The noblest instinct of man" is civil defense.
Most people don't think "they" are doing enough. Fleming disagrees and lists the things "they" are doing to plan for a nuclear attack.
