Taiwan Issues First ‘War Survival’ Handbook Amid the Chinese Regime Threat

Taiwan’s military issued a “war survival” handbook on April 12 advising citizens how to respond to and protect themselves from a war situation, as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine increases worries about a possible Chinese regime incursion into the island.The handbook outlines how residents can find bomb shelters using a phone app, how to stockpile supplies for wartime, and information on reserve force mobilization. “The pamphlet was to provide the public with emergency response measures in the event of a military crisis or possible disasters, so that they can enable safety preparedness and help themselves survive,” said Liu Tai-yi, an official of the ministry’s All-out Defence Mobilisation unit. The 28-page guide issued by Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense will be updated with localized information, including shelter sites, hospital locations, and shops for daily needs, Liu told an online news conference. “Plan ahead in all affairs and you shall be successful,” said Confucius. The new guide sample from our mobilization agency provides a solid ground for our local governments to instruct citizens on what to do when emergencies including disasters and military assaults come. pic.twitter.com/S1qaO5Hpqj — 國防部 Ministry of National Defense, R.O.C.
