The Test seemed to happen and no blackout! But that doesn’t mean that it cant or wont happen. Today is the time to get prepared for anything and this scenario is one of the worst that we can go through since our country needs the grid to function.
Power Grid Down Drill To Be Conducted By US Government
November 13-14 2013 In the unlikely event of an EMP attack, it seems that nearly everyone from former DHS director, Janet Napolitano to former CIA director, James Woolsey have discussed the possibility of a grid take down through an EMP attack.
Further, the Nuclear Energy Regulatory Commission in their,NERC PowerPoint presentation, stated that one of the possible outcomes of an attack will be a “prolonged blackout…”
An electrical grid joint drill simulation is being planned in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Thousands of utility workers, FBI agents, anti-terrorism experts, governmental agencies, and more than 150 private businesses are involved in the November power grid drill.
The downed power grid simulation will reportedly focus on both physical and cyber attacks. The antiquated electrical system in the United States has been one of the most neglected pieces of integral infrastructure.
The SHIELD Act, which is stalled in Congress, is the first serious piece of legislation in many years to attempt to address the vulnerabilities of the power grid in. As previously reported by Off The Grid News, a recent American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) report gave the power grid a “D+” when grading various pieces of infrastructure and public services in the United States.
The disaster drill is being described as a crisis practice unlike anything the real power grid has ever experienced. The GridEX II drill Nov. 13-14 will focus primarily on how governments will react if the electrical grid fails and, for instance, the food supply chain collapses.
The Times said experts call the power grid the nation’s “glass jaw.” Even the military gets 99 percent of its power the same way everyday citizens get it — from commercially run companies. solar power
This national geographic program is premiering two weeks prior to the ‘supposed’ GridEx 2 Exercise to test bringing down the grid by the partnering utility companies of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico… hmmmm… better get prepared just in case! Could this program be ‘telling’ us like the ‘elite’ always say they do? No fear, just prepare.

This drill is scheduled to begin November 13, 2013. What is not being discussed is how much of the nation will lose power or, since it is a three-nation drill (United States and parts of Canada and Mexico), the entire U.S. will go “offline” so to speak. What we are told is that all food and water transport will stop, business and banking will stop, transportation and shopping will stop, communications will stop, and there will be no heat in homes, schools or places of business. We are also told this will only be a “simulation”. As such, it is best to be prepared one way or another, just in case.
Therefore, everyone will have to decide whether to go to work, whether to send their kids to school or have them possibly locked down, and they will have to decide whether they will have non-perishable foods and water on hand, alternative lighting and heating, medical supplies, etc., for what will likely be ordered sheltering in place.
American Blackout (Trailer) Oct 27, 2013 9pm ET Could be preview for the GridEx 2 Drill Blackout on November 13 Inside a grocery store, empty shelves in every aisle gather dust. Outside, the ATM flickers “OUT OF SERVICE” before finally losing power to a blackout. Water faucets run dry and phone networks disappear.
“I’ll talk about what I know, which is offense,” said former NSA employee Charlie Miller to his audience at Defcon in 2010.
For his presentation entitled Kim Jong-il and Me: How to Build A Cyber Army to Attack the U.S., Miller presented a hypothetical proposal to a country (North Korea in this case) on how to wage cyber warfare to control and disrupt American targets including freight shipping, power grids, phone service, air traffic, and even
