The Threat of an EMP Attack

Until recently, I have never thought too much about an EMP attack.  For one, I really didn’t know what it was and another, I just didn’t think it would be possible for another country to get past us to do so.

Over the past few months, I have been doing a lot of research and what I found out actually shocked me! I had no idea that our government had established it’s own EMP Commission due to the chances of an attack on us.  It was at the moment of learning this that I realized this can be a huge threat and I have done absolutely no preparation or even thinking about what my family would endure if it were to happen.

Today, I ran across an article about N. Korea and how they are threatening the US.  It was quite frightening to learn that the possibility of another country hitting us with an EMP is very serious and can be accomplished under several circumstances.  In fact, most countries know about the only way they can overcome our defenses and technology is to knock it out, and what better way than an EMP.  Not just to destroy our grid and infrastructure, but to create total chaos.

Because of this, I have been learning a lot more on the topic, trying to be better stocked on equipment that is solar powered and does not rely on any type of a electrical components.  This can be very difficult which is why many people buy or make something called a faraday cage to protect them from an EMP.

Although I don’t have one yet, I’m in the process of learning how to make one and suggest you do to.  Search it out on Youtube and you can find all kinds of ideas and how it’s done.
