The occurrence of an Electromagnetic pulse on the planet may be recorded as one of the worst disaster to ever happen. EMP simply means a release of electromagnetic energy. EMP involves the release of large amounts energy which is usually released once. After the electromagnetic energy has been released during the EMP, it then travels via the earth. The energy also travels through other things that may be on the earth surface. It is known that EMP will not affect the humans directly. However, all the electronics could be fried. The damage of the EMP will also occur on the grid line and this will be a major blow. Things such as the Cellphones, cars, radios, Landline telephones will all stop working. To be on the safe side, it is essential that everyone prepares for the same. Generally, there exist many guidelines that have been put forward to assist people when EMP occurs. Some people have, however, put more emphasis on some of the guidelines that one should follow in case EMP strikes.
There are many people who have taken caution towards the EMP strike. There are those people who have decided to set aside properties which are off grid which that are located far away. As with the others, it is important that the larger crowd prepares for the EMP by taking the necessary steps however small they may be. The most important thing to do is to accept the reality. It is possible that EMP is capable of damaging everything in the planet. Understanding that is very good. When you accept these, it is important that you do not get scared. The idea of accepting the reality should however, be a way of fueling you towards preparation.
Learning what will be affected is also important. In reality, no one has a vivid idea of what will be affected by the EMP. The effect of EMP strike could be smaller in that anything affected will be functional after a short period. The strike could however be extensive such that everything such as electronics will all be fried. For this reason, there is a need to protect the electronic devices and things that may be valued the most. Your preparations should also include supplies. The production and distribution of food will be affected also as this relies on the grid. The supply of utilities such as water will also be affected. You should therefore ensure that you have stocked enough supplies. Ensure that the supplies you stock are enough to run for like 30 days. Your stock supplies may include water, foodstuffs and hygiene items. It is also important that you learn how to survive when off grid.
