This is one of the "duck and cover" government propaganda films Christopher speaks of:

They were shown during the '50s and '60s in classrooms or school assemblies, and I remember us doing such drills in elementary school. Sometimes their true intent was disguised as "tornado drills".
That doesn't even make any sense. Why train children to protect themselves from something they can't be protected from under the guise of protecting themselves from something else.

The entire point of "duck and cover" was to give the illusion that you could walk away from a nuclear attack.
