History, Expertise & Products...

KI4U, Inc. is much more than just a licensed Radiation Calibration Laboratory...

We've been promoting Nuclear Civil Defense Training of the public for well over a decade. See where our proposal was voted & ranked #1 at DHS & FEMA National Dialogue on Preparedness a year before Fukushima!

Two months after the above Local, State, Tribal, and Federal Preparedness Task Force produced a report of findings and recommendations for Congress, we saw in the NYTimes U.S. Rethinks Strategy for the Unthinkable and from USAToday L.A. dry run shows urban nuke attack 'a survivable event'. We'd like to think we helped spur along that govt reassessment of the utility of Civil Defense training of the public for nuclear disasters. Hopefully, the govt will now follow up with a comprehensive program to actually instruct the public in the specifics of how to better survive a future nuclear event. In the meantime, we'll still have our FREE guides available; The Good News About Nuclear Destruction! and What To Do If A Nuclear Disaster Is Imminent!

We've also been offering Potassium Iodide (KI) tablets, the thyroid-protecting anti-radiation pills since 1999, long before most saw any need for it. We've supplied the Federal Government, military, and many state and municipal governments, as well as to doctors, hospitals and pharmacies. (Including 300,000 doses of Potassium Iodide pills ordered shortly after 9/11 by the Office of Emergency Preparedness, and picked up by Lear Jet the same day.) Also, tens of thousands of individuals and families have bought KI direct from us via the internet here.

We've invested heavily to secure the largest private emergency inventory of Potassium Iodide (KI) in the USA, and delivered over 6 million doses worldwide since the Fukushima tragedy, but still know this won't be anywhere near enough in a future major nuclear emergency. Nor, is enough of it likely to be exactly where it's needed when the time comes, either, until the day every family already has their own supply. We are the exclusive national distributor of ThyroSafe™, the only FDA approved split-dosage, essential to prompt and accurate dosing of children. Our popular informational FAQ site details it all at 'Potassium Iodide Anti-Radiation Pill FAQ' seen at... which begins further down that page.

We also show the public and govt agencies 'emergency alternatives' of iodine for the inadequate supply of available Potassium Iodide tablets if/when anything nuclear gets unleashed here in the USA. For large organizations, especially those on tight budgets, these are viable alternatives even now. We are not concerned that some won't then buy our KI tablets because there, unfortunately, won't be enough available anyways, when really needed quickly. That emergency Plan "B" if no KI tablets available is here...

Additionally, eight months prior to 9/11/01, we acquired from FEMA over 100,000 Civil Defense radiological survey meters, dosimeters, and geiger counters from the Federal Depot in Fort Worth, TX. That required 12 tractor trailers to ship the 416 pallet loads down to our warehouse/lab in Gonzales, TX.

Our inventory here represents the largest non-government source of these Civil Defense instruments and we are the only private rad lab in the country that specializes in re-calibrating these CD survey meters, geiger counters and dosimeters.

We are licensed and authorized to re-calibrate and re-certify these instruments with our three high-range Cesium-137 calibrators here and our lab staff of 6 trained & certified radiological employees. We utilize the unique Dept. of Army - Office of Civil Defense calibrators that were specifically made for calibrating all these Civil Defense survey meters and dosimeters. We are licensed to do so in conformance to the standards as set forth by the State of Texas Bureau of Radiation Control, FEMA, ASTM and the NRC, all of which we adhere to.

These same-type Civil Defense survey meters are in current use by thousands of Fire Depts, Haz-Mat and First Responders across the country. We daily have state agencies and municipalities shipping us their Civil Defense instruments to be re-calibrated, as well as from the general public. We detail our calibration services here...

We also sell calibrated units, along with FEMA manuals, to government agencies and the general public here.
More info at our FAQ entitled: 'Civil Defense Rad Meters, Geiger Counters and Dosimeters FAQ' at...

In 2002, we introduced an additional FAQ focusing on the effects of nuclear blasts and fallout and the protective strategies families can effectively employ. Free detailed info for DIY building of fallout shelters and the on-line FREE version of the Oak Ridge National Labs book; 'Nuclear War Survival Skills' can be found there. Also, sources for 'ready built' commercial versions, including our own inexpensive design fabricated here, can all be seen at the 'Nuclear Blast & Fallout Shelters FAQ' here...

The fallout shelters are not our fastest sellers... yet. We often feel here like Noah building mini-arks, and until the fallout begins to rain down, most folks won't take the need for one seriously. Of course, most didn't take terrorism & KI seriously either, before 9/11.

But, that's OK, too, IF you learn now how readily you can make a corner of your home into a truly effective family fallout shelter. You'll be pleasantly surprised discovering in our FREE guide; WHAT TO DO IF A NUCLEAR DISASTER IS IMMINENT! how little time, money, and energy it really requires to make that essential difference for your family survival. Abandon any myths of nuclear un-survivability and prepare your family now to endure confidently, when you discover the facts there and at THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT NUCLEAR DESTRUCTION!.

In 2002, we also released a FAQ on MRE's (Meals, Ready-to-Eat) and had, until FEMA bought most of it out for Katrina, over 180,000+ Entree's of this long-storage food in inventory. This is the same as what our military are eating in the M.E. right now. The MRE FAQ, along with the remaining menu selections and pricing for them here...

In January of 2003, we introduced at the National Health Physics Society Annual Convention our breakthrough NukAlert™. This is a patented, matchbox sized, key-chain attachable, personal radiation monitoring and alarming device. With its ten year battery it is always "ON" 24/7 continuously monitoring the local environment of the user. Details of the popular NukAlert™, acquired by our military and govt agencies, including it's passing EMP testing by the Naval Air Warfare Center, can be seen here...

More recently, after eight months of R&D with military contractor, we were proud to have introduced in July of 2010 the RADSticker™ peel & stick, postage stamp sized, instant color developing dosimeter. This inexpensive $5 dosimeter will both dampen public panic and safely enable First-Responders into where most needed in a future radiation emergency. See it here.

And, even more recently, we've opened our lab up to the public with FREE Radiation Contamination Testing For Your Home & Local Area!

And, in July, 2014, with Physicians for Civil Defense we put up the first Good News About Nuclear Destruction billboard in SLC, UT.

Our primary mission, throughout, has always been one of education and dispelling the myths of nuclear and radiation un-survivability that hold back the majority from seriously embracing life-saving family preparations. See/read; THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT NUCLEAR DESTRUCTION! Also, if/when the country is ever in a panic again, like during the 'Cuban Missile Crisis', everyone will also need our FREE guide; WHAT TO DO IF A NUCLEAR DISASTER IS IMMINENT! And, our latest guide detailing protection from overseas fallout, like Fukushima; When An ill Wind Blows From Afar!

We've been promoting Nuclear Civil Defense Training of the public for well over a decade. See where our proposal was voted & ranked #1 at DHS & FEMA National Dialogue on Preparedness a year before Fukushima!

For much of the above, we are the sole public source. And, we are continually evaluating new practical solutions which can all be found and seen on our products page at And, links to our popular and acclaimed, very detailed, informational FAQ's. And, for two of the books we sell; 'Nuclear War Survival Skills' and the FEMA 'Radiation Safety in Shelters' they are also both available to just read or print out for free there, too! Also, all our product pricing is very competitive as we strive to assure that more fellow Americans might then be able to afford these essential family preps. Our modest profit attitude here is that it's a tool to build ever larger emergency inventories now for the coming need, to then be able serve more on that day 'none will ever forget'.

We look at all of this like you would medical or fire insurance, where you never acquire it eagerly looking forward to getting to use it anytime soon, but will be very glad to have it, if it is ever needed! We tell all our product customers that we hope/pray it all gets a chance to gather much dust upon their shelves un-used for many years! I've got a family and kids, too, and truly wish none of these preps was needed. I'd eagerly, and quite joyfully, go about finding something else to do, if that was the case. Unfortunately, it is not.

Feel free to call or e-mail me, if any questions or comments.
