Preparing for possible cyberattacks or EMP attacks

By Tim Gamble

A few thoughts for preparing for possible cyberattacks or EMP attacks:
  • Make sure you have / print hard copies of recent bank and other financial statements.
  • Make sure you have / print hard copies of important insurance papers, including account numbers and contact info.
  • Make sure you have / print hard copies of your contacts (names, addresses, phone numbers).
  • Make sure you have physical maps of your area, also your possible bug out locations.
  • Make sure you have cash on hand (ATM machines, credit cards, debit cards, even paper checks may not work, and banks won't be open for business - cash may be the only way to transact business for a few hours to several weeks depending on the severity of the situation).
  • Make sure you have / print hard copies of important prepper/survival information (example: print instructions from the CDC on how to use Potassium Iodine to treat radiation sickness since you will NOT be able to look it up after a nuclear or EMP attack).
  • Most stores and delivery services will not be operating while the grid (power, Internet, etc.) is down, therefore you need to have a minimum of several weeks of food, medicine and other supplies stockpiled BEFORE the event. More is better. 
  • Have a plan to get home on foot if you are caught away from home when an EMP burst takes out all vehicle electronics. This means having good walking shoes or boots, adequate clothing for the weather, and a get home bag with a bottle or two of water plus a few other supplies you may need. Be armed. 
  • Have alternate ways to heat your home in winter in case the power is out for an extended period. (Possibilities: woodstove, fireplace, propane heater). 
  • Have alternate ways to cook if the power grid is down. (Possibilities: woodstove, camp grill, charcoal grill),
