The paper presents a sociological analysis of the prophylactic activity and self-preservation behavior of the population of different zones of the contaminated territories. During the post-accident period communities were formed with different attitude to the radiological situation, features of self-preservation behavior, and social activity. Members of the community formed in the obligatory resettlement zone are confident of their choice of residence and preservation of the factors vital for their existence. This confidence is caused by lack of environmental, medical, and especially hygienic knowledge. The population of the guaranteed voluntary resettlement zone, in general, only declares the value of health while manifests low activity in measures aimed at the health preservation.

Key words: contaminated territories, self-preservation behavior, preventive activities, life values.
