Best Answer

The Government sent barrage balloons into the air. The large barrage balloons were strong enough to destroy any aircraft hitting into it. They also sent Anderson and Morrision shelters to residents of Britain so they could shelter there when the Blitz began.

This evacuation effort was known as "Operation Pied Piper" in Britain.
