- The threat we face with EMP
- And what you can do to protect your electronics
A Nation Without Power:
In a nation that relies heavily upon electricity, an EMP attack could be devastating. It would destroy many of our electronic devices
and in addition, could significantly damage many of our high voltage transformers causing massive power outages across the country resulting in mass chaos. Unfortunately, most of these transformers are not made here in the USA. Replacing them would take months if not years. As a result, long-term power outages would bring much suffering to our people and cause many deaths.
Also Contains Articles on:
Civil Defense History, Early Civil Defense Films, "Beyond Duck and Cover", Rescue Task Force, Precision Air Rifles, Emergency Communications, Remembrances of 9-11
