What the hell is going on? What can we expect? How will it affect us? I have been trying to read up on it and everything is very vague on the tests they’re conducting. Either that or they’re saying it’s to take steam from Antifa. Either way, I don’t care, I think it’s a step in the right direction for making preparations for such a disastrous event as an EMP, but what do I need to plan for?

I find it interesting that this is only recently being planned...even though the official report on potential dangers of an EMP was released years ago. Short of shutting down telecommunication satellites, turning off the power grid, and turning off all internet access...I am not really sure how they are going to "simulate" such an event.

Agreed. And you know they wouldn’t go that far. Startup would be a nightmare. Not to mention it hasn’t been broadcast enough for people to know about it/plan. Can you imagine the panic it would cause if they just did something that extreme with as little public awareness as there is. No one at work knew what I was talking about when I asked them about it.

I've had similar response when I've asked friends. There is no way to simulate an EMP event...so I don't know why it is being talked about.

Maybe they are hoping for the panic.

I imagine they are just doing this to test how reliable some of their communication methods will be when the normal stuff goes down. It will be nothing.
