A Survival Preparedness Plan - Creates Peace of Mind, Saves You Money, Ensures You Get The Job Done

Everyday more people discover that more freedoms have eroded and much of what they depended upon is in danger of not existing tomorrow. Retirement funds lose substantial value as politicians ask for more from citizens and then give it away to questionable recipients. People want to know what they can do to survive the uncertain future looming on the horizon.

Could an electromagnetic pulse weapon (EMP) bring about a wide-spread power outage

EMP Weapon

An EMP weapon, aka an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), refers to the electromagnetic radiation resulting from an explosive device, most commonly nuclear, or an electromagnetic bomb designed specifically to create a fluctuating magnetic field. The EMP can also be caused by a short, but highly intense burst of electromagnetic energy. Fortunately, unless the device is exploded at an extremely high altitude, the damage is usually limited to the narrow radius of the blast site.

The overall effectiveness of an EMP weapon is controlled by the following factors:

1.    The detonation altitude
2.    The electromagnetic weapon yield
3.    Distance of the electronic device from the detonation
4.    Geographical features between the device and the detonation

For electronic or electrical equipment to be affected, the EMP weapon would have to detonate above the visual horizon. For instance an electromagnetic pulse weapon detonated 300 miles above Kansas would affect most of the United States, although the West Coast would be less affected due to the interference of the Rocky Mountains.



There is some concern that a rogue terrorist state might use an EMP device. Fortunately the technical difficulty in delivery of the device may limit the threat to those larger national powers that have the ability to employ a long-range missile as a delivery device. However a high altitude detonation just off shore could devastate the entire coastal region and perhaps up to a thousand miles inland.

Due to the possibility of an EMP weapon detonation by terrorists in a large urban city, many businesses have moved valuable assets outside of the city, or have taken steps to protect vital equipment from EMP. Initially research showed that the overall effects of a widespread EMP burst over a modern industrialized nation would be to turn that country back a hundred years. While that worst case scenario is probably not all that accurate according to more recent studies, there is still need for concern.

Is there something that the average citizen can do to provide EMP protection for their assets? One method is using the Faraday cage to provide EMP shielding for valuable electronics in the event of an EMP weapon detonation.

Just remember, while some electronics might be useful to have still working after an EMP weapon attack, having a working cell phone will be pretty useless when the necessary infrastructure may not be working.
