The EMP attack is the most terrifying of all scenarios because of its ability to affect so many people. The nuclear bomb is a powerful weapon of war but the loss of power to 300 million in a serious EMP that shuts down all three of America’s power grids is terrifying.
The fear of being obliterated by the enemy pales in comparison to being eaten by your neighbor in desperation. I contend that the EMP is the most devastating force in our electronic world.
What would you do if something like this happened while you were at work? Do you have a Get Home Bag prepared?
Get Home Bag
The get home bag is a powerful tool and a great first step when dealing with disasters. Its especially helpful in an EMP because your vehicle could fall to the EMP. Yes, your car may not work. Now getting home gets a lot more difficult.
Be sure that you build yourself a powerful Get Home Bag.
Upon getting home you are going to need to consider your next move. You cannot make a NEXT MOVE until you are home and your family is together. However, once that has happened its time to start thinking about the importance of staying or leaving.
Are you going to bugout? It might be your best option. The bugout is a limited time offer so you have to be ready to go when the time comes.
Power in Numbers
If you decide to stay home and bug in, you are going to need to have a deep conversation with your community. You see, its going to take power in numbers and resources in numbers if you are to survive a serious disaster like an EMP.
While your neighbors may be unwilling to prepare today, things will change when they come to realize the true threat.
