The ‘nuclear football,’ a briefcase containing strike options, secret hideouts, Emergency Alert System procedures, and a card (or ‘biscuit’) containing nuclear codes, accompanies the President of the United States at all times. Very rarely, the codes have been accidentally left unsecured– including when Reagan was shot in 1981, and the biscuit was found on the floor of the ER. Source Source 2
