An electromagnetic pulse attack would destroy the power grid and knock out our nation's defenses. The threat of a "permanent blackout" across the United States caused by an EMP(electro-magnetic pulse) weapon has received a lot of press in recent months. Considered an unlikely event by most people in years past, the more it has been discussed in both the private sector and the Pentagon, the more likely it has become that we will one day be attacked by an EMP, seems to be what the data on the EMP threat is saying. Major news publications (the Washington Times for example) have reported that China's military is developing a weapon capable of small scale "EMP" attacks -- said to be for the purpose of shutting down America's aircraft carriers in the oceans. China has been known to bring submarines close to American ships from time to time -- very close.
With no vehicles or trucks on the road -- due to the majority of vehicles' fried components as a result of the EMP -- there will be no new deliveries of food to restock store shelves as store shelves empty when there's a mad dash for groceries across the land.If that's not bad enough, all foods requiring refrigeration will start going bad within just a few hours. One expert on the EMP threat says that in the first hour we can expect 250,000 - 500,000 people to lose their lives.
An elevator is one of the last places I'm sure most people would want to be when an EMP takes place -- especially an elevator in a tall skyscraper in a large city experiencing a terrorist attack. Do you know where you're going to be when the lights go down for good -- if an EMP takes place?
Final concern for people trapped inside an elevator -- buildings without air conditioning (when the power fails) can turn into ovens during the summer months, especially an elevator in the heart of a building. You can search the roof of an elevator for a service latch to a hatch, but sometimes these require special tools to open; if you can reach the service latch that is -- meaning you're either about 7 feet in height or you're lucky enough to have a second person in the elevator with you, who can give you a boost up.


Hospitals are going to be a disaster following an EMP -- people needing medical attention will show up on foot; aid workers will likely be sent to nearby emergencies and other aid workers will stay behind to help with the many people on critical systems that are now without power. Nuclear power plants operate in a "controlled meltdown" -- rods in a state of meltdown emit high amounts of heat, generating steam from fresh water that is pumped over these rods, which then turn turbines, which produce electricity.When electricity fails at a nuclear power plant backup generators come online to keep everything operating safely. Whatever ends up happening, I don't think it would be a great idea to own a working vehicle when most other cars have stopped working. Rather than counting on your car or truck, you may want to have some mountain bikes and bicycle trailers in your garage back at home (which of course may also make you a target of a heist).If you do want to run the risk of owning a running vehicle -- and if you're a mechanic -- you can disassemble electrical parts to things like an ATV or motorcycle and then store these electrical components in a device known as a Faraday Cage (more on that below) -- which is a "do it yourself" metal box that can be used to protect small electronic devices from the effects of an EMP.
If you have an early model car or truck or motorbike (for example, 1960s and before), key electrical components could be stored in a Faraday Cage.
One terrifying aspect of an EMP is the loss of communication with family -- your children, your parents, your wife, your husband. If the control yoke is useless for steering, I'm not sure what chance at all they have of the jet being directed toward a relatively flat area to land.
Make a lot of noise until someone responds and confirms they're going to help you get out.Where Will You Be When an EMP Strikes? Additionally, buildings -- especially large buildings -- are built with electronic ventilation systems.Some of these buildings may become dangerous to be in after a few days of the power being out, due to stagnant air. If the power comes back on you can get crushed -- so I wouldn't make this escape unless you know for sure that the power is down for good:Be sure to pull the "STOP" button in the elevator before you climb out through the top.
But like a commercial airplane these backup generators will end up fried in an EMP, as everything is wired to everything else, and it's this wiring that allows an electro-magnetic pulse to do so much damage to so many systems.With the power failure and fried generators, we now have a nuclear meltdown on our hands. This is reported to be a way to get older vehicles (early 60s for example and before) operating after an EMP has taken place.


Building a copper mesh around each box adds another layer of EMP protection to your contents inside.

Learn how to protect your two way radios from the effects of an EMP as well as a communications "system" for re-connecting with loved ones. If this thing comes down on anything other than concrete, most likely everything on the bottom of the plane -- landing gears, wheels -- are going to be torn off as the plane sinks into the soil.
With no on board computers, that stick becomes useless when there is absolutely no power to send signals to the wings and back of the plane.The threat of losing power in a jumbo jet exists today, without an EMP -- but because there are so many battery back up systems and generators on board, if one system goes down, another goes online. Will the force of that kind of impact cause the plane to break up?Left to chance, my guess is that the majority of those 4,000 approximate flights in the sky when an EMP takes place are going to end in disasters.
If that building's maintenance man lives 20 miles away and his car doesn't work, how is he going to get to the building?Besides, his phone isn't going to work, so he can't simply be called on the phone. If you live near buildings with elevators, consider rounding up a number of people to do a search for anyone who may be stuck in an elevator.
Finally, the last thing on his mind might be his job that he doesn't care too much for anyway -- in fact right now he might be a lot more worried about his children or parents who live thirty miles or so in the opposite direction of that building where he works as a maintenance man.What does that mean for people stuck inside an elevator in a downtown high rise or other building?
