[Editor’s Note: One thing is for certain if an EMP occurs while many of us are away at work, the city quickly can become a death trap. As writer“, Jeremiah Johnson warns, “Definitive action taken at the critical point is critical to your survival.” Having a plan in place and supplies will give you that critical edge you need to survive.]

ReadyNutrition Readers, this is Part 2 of a 3-part series dealing with immediate actions to be taken in the event of an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) attack. You can read Part 1 here. In the last segment, we covered what you should do if you’re on the road heading to or from work, or traveling. Now we are going to detail some actions and preparations for your workplace. Keep in mind: there will be a “blending” of these parts in actual practice, as to move from one locale to another, you will use the information presented in Part 1 when traveling. All the parts should complement one another.

I also think it would be a good idea to take listed items and burn off an extra copy as a form of a “checklist,” as not many people have perfect memories (myself included), and it could help you out in the time of trouble and eliminate the need for guesswork. Let’s start off with a scenario.

Let’s start off with a scenario.

You are an office worker in Anytown, a small midwestern city who works in a 7-story building located on the eastern 1/3 of the town. The direction of your home from work is toward the East. You are sitting at your desk with a window facing the west, and it’s about 10:00 am. Suddenly, a flash of light catches your attention in the sky, and then it disappears. Simultaneously, all the lights in the office go out, as does your desk computer. No backup lights come on. You look at your watch, and it’s dead. You pick up your desk phone, and there is no dial tone. There are murmurings from coworkers, and people are shuffling into an open area with a conference table. You have just been hit by an EMP attack, and it appears that you have already punched out early, and probably for good.

The scenario will be played out throughout the United States. Now is the time to act. Those who are preparedness minded must keep this in mind: Definitive action taken at the critical point is critical to your survival.
