Here are some tips for surviving an EMP attack against the United States

Non-preppers often scoff at those who make an effort to prepare for different disaster scenarios. Would they be thinking the same thing after an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack takes place in the country and civilization comes to a halt? (h/t to VigilPrudence.com)
Large-scale EMP event can halt civilization as we know it

An EMP is a “high-frequency burst of electromagnetic energy caused by the rapid acceleration of [charged] particles.” A large-scale EMP may result in the collapse of critical civilian infrastructures and services like banking, finance, food, water systems; the power grid; telecommunications; and transportation all over the country.

There are two types of EMP events: Those that occur naturally due to a great geomagnetic storm; and those that are man-made via the use of a nuclear weapon delivered by a primitive missile. Both types of EMP event may have similar effects.

Can you survive in a post-EMP America?

It’s never too late to start prepping, but if you want to keep your family safe after an EMP attack, you need to prep right now. Technology has revolutionized various aspects of your life, but after an EMP event, you would probably be helpless without electricity.

Preppers have an advantage because of their survival stockpiles and their various prepping skills, but what about the rest of America?

A group of EMP experts recently provided risk assessments which warned that the use of a strategic EMP weapon may cause significant damage to the U.S. The revelation also supported an alarming fact: The U.S. electrical grid urgently needs to be fortified.

Another important fact is that a massive geomagnetic storm or solar flare may hit the planet at some point within the next 50 years. The effects of such an event would be catastrophic.

It remains unknown how an EMP event will affect the country, but it is better to start preparing today than leave things as they are until it’s too late. If an EMP event causes the loss of electricity and fries the circuitry of every electrical equipment, such as modern vehicles, how will your family get through the rest of this scenario?

Most homes would have food and water for several days, although all water utilities would cease since there would be no power to operate pumping stations or treatment plants. Stores would run empty the moment daily food deliveries stop.

Communication would be next to impossible as landlines, smartphones, television, and radio stations would stop working. Looters would take advantage of the ensuing chaos to target shops until they move on to domestic housing.

Without the police, there wouldn’t be law and order.

Prepare for the worst

If you’re new to prepping, now is a good time to start building your survival stockpile. Start stocking up on clean water, food, weapons, and ammunition that will last you for at least a couple of weeks.

As you get the hang of things, gather enough supplies in your stockpile for at least a month-long SHTF scenario. Learn how to use your weapons well so you can...

I understand that I sound very negative about my survival of EMP, but I am trained by the best in it and it is just my personal assessment of my own survival. your results may differ depending of factors outside of my control...

EVERYBODY survives an EMP. It is a biologically harmless event. The problem is the aftermath. Almost nothing is destroyed, nobody is harmed, our infrastructure is totally intact.....except almost NOTHING powered by electricity will be working anymore. The event itself is harmless. It's the inevitable violent near total collapse of civilization that will be the killer. Tens of millions will starve to death in weeks. Tens of millions more will meet a violent death at the hands of others. And after that the diseases, the deprivation, the environment will start taking its toll. An EMP event from the sun could set us back two plus centuries.
We'd almost be better off having a nuclear war or a pandemic that would 'thin the herd' from day one.
