VIDEO: New York City launched its newest PSA on Monday with a focus on preparing for a possible nuclear attack. "While the likelihood of a nuclear weapon incident occurring in/near New York City is very low, it is important New Yorkers know the steps to stay safe," the NYC Emergency Management Department said in its press release. The short public service announcement identifies three steps New Yorkers can take "as the threat landscape continues to evolve." “So there’s been a nuclear attack,” the PSA starts. “Don’t ask me how or why. Just know that the big one has hit. OK. So what do we do?” In the event of a nuclear incident, the PSA advises the following actions: Get inside: Move indoors and away from any windows. Stay inside: Close all doors and window, and move into the basement if you have one.
