Radiological Scientific Officer
If you need additional free help in building a shelter, you can E-mail me for free consultation.
While previously, I would have been glad to chat with anyone, about any ideas, the interest has now become so great, and the requests in such number, that I wish to restrict this FREE service to those who meet the following three requirements:
and they are not merely "thinking" about it.
2. They already have a place where they can build it.
3. They have some amount of monetary resources
b. describing the nature of the property you have available
c. any plans you have in mind
d. what monetary resources you have available
- no matter how limited.

I am the only non-governmental Radiological Scientific Officer in Canada. I graduated second in the last class that was taught. The pre-requisite for the course was supposedly a Ph.D in physics plus the previous required courses which I had completed with top grades.
While I did not have the required degree I had the good fortune to room next to the top student in the class who permitted me to study with him each evening and sit with him at each meal. We also sat next to each other in class and therefore were always able to team up on in-class projects. It was through his great assistance that I managed to come in second. Prior to that course I had taken three previous government courses. The first in the U.S. and the second and third in Canada. I had also graduated as the Honor Student from a specialized USAF AACS school and based upon this, and work experience with the Western Electric Company as an engineer, was offered a high paying job as a civilian doing the acceptance inspection for the USAF nuclear missile sites, which I declined.
Over the past many years I have built 24 shelters ranging in capacity from one person to 500. These have been of almost every design conceivable, and I have also consulted on a great many others.
In fact, I probably became the most notorious shelter builder in the world. Several major newspapers, in both the United States and Canada, have done multiple page articles about me. There was an article and picture on the front page of the Canadian national newspaper, and there have been articles about me in the national magazine. As recently as March 2002 I was featured on the front cover of a national construction magazine. Over the years there have been dozens of other newspaper and magazine articles, plus lengthy TV shows, and I have spoken on more radio shows than I can count, often being interviewed by phone from thousands of miles away.
I taught a college course on survival and have been the guest speaker at other college's survival courses and numerous conferences on survival. All told, millions of people have heard me or heard about me, including thousands on a face to face basis in various presentations and shelter tours. I have even been the subject of a post-doctoral dissertation by two Ph.Ds from the University of California who referred to me as the "dean" of American survivalists.
You probably cannot imagine the number or variety of survivalist groups that I have met with and heard their ideas. I have also, at one time or another, talked with most of the survivalist leaders in North America and have read many, many volumes of ideas and thoughts on the subject. At this point I am surprised if I hear anything new.
Interest in this subject has come in waves. The Berlin Wall crises, the Falkland Island crises, the Gulf War crises, some particular movie or some other event. Presently, interest is growing again because of activities in the Middle East and as the reality is sinking in that the nuclear threat has never been greater since the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Over the last many years, my wife and I have distributed free well over one hundred thousand booklets to try to prepare people for a nuclear holocaust. We have never charged a dime for doing this. My position is that I cannot play God, deciding who I will help, so I cannot put up the barrier of money in refusing to help someone, therefore I offer the help freely to everyone.
