How to think about, protect against, and survive an EMP attack
A massive electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is like a nuclear bomb that goes off in the sky and knocks out all electronics for hundreds of miles. Cars stop working, planes fall from the sky, hospitals are unable to function, and grocery stores are emptied within hours. In this blog post, we will discuss what an EMP is, how it could happen, and how you can shield your electronics and prepare your home to survive an attack.
An EMP is a short burst of electromagnetic energy that travels through the air and can knock out all electronics for hundreds of miles. It is created by either a nuclear bomb or a solar storm. A nuclear bomb creates an intense, high-altitude blast that sends out an EMP wave, while a solar storm is a release of magnetic energy from the sun that can cause EMPs on Earth.
An EMP could happen in a number of ways. It could be caused by a nuclear bomb attack from another country, or it could be the result of a solar storm. A terrorist group could also detonate a small nuclear bomb in the atmosphere to create an EMP.
There is no way to completely protect your electronics from an EMP, but you can take some steps to shield them and help them survive if they are knocked out. The most important thing is to keep them in a Faraday cage. A Faraday cage is a metal box or enclosure that will block the electromagnetic energy from entering or leaving. You can also purchase special EMP-proof bags and boxes to store your electronics in.

Another important step is to have a backup plan for when the power goes out. Have a generator, fuel, and battery backups ready to go. Make sure you have plenty of food and water stored up, as grocery stores will be emptied within hours of an EMP. And lastly, have a plan for how you will communicate with your loved ones if an EMP happens.
An EMP is a real threat, and it’s important to be prepared. By following these tips, you can help shield your electronics and prepare your home to survive an attack.
