EMP Protection – How To Plan For A Massive Magnetic Pulse Attack: An EMP pulse travels line of sight. So it can cover a vast area if the nuclear detonation occurs high in the atmosphere.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s Time To Take Action.

If society collapses, you can bet that the foods the pioneers ate will become dietary staples

The Lost Ways prepares you to deal with worst-case scenarios with the minimum amount of resources just like our forefathers lived their lives, totally independent from electricity, cars, or modern technology.

So pay chose attention because this video will change your life forever for the good!

Because a massive electromagnetic pulse attack is a very real possibility.

That’s why you desperately need an EMP protection plan.

Don’t believe everything you’ll hear.

Kim Jong Un will continue his North Korean nuclear tests.

Meetings and fake handshakes will not change the collision course we’re on.

And if it’s not North Korea, it will be some other terrorist organization or country.

That’s why it’s long overdue to protect yourself from a massive EMP attack.

  • But what would an EMP attack really look like on United States soil?
  • How bad could the destruction be?
  • What are your EMP protection and survival options?
  • What’s the best EMP Emergency Management Plan?
  • What is EMP anyways?

In this guide, we’ll answer all these questions and more.

Specifically, I want to educate you by discussing the following EMP topics:

When a conductor moves through a magnetic field it produces an electrical current.

This useful technology is how generators work at your local power plant.

Likewise, when a moving magnetic field passes a conductor, it creates current.

This phenomenon is called Electro-Magnetic Pulse, or EMP for short.

It sounds technical; it seems complicated.

But at first, it doesn’t really sound all that scary.

It sounds like something you’d hear a boring physics professor talk about.

Not a serious national security concern.

But don’t be fooled, it’s real and it is scary.

Because what happens if the magnetic field produced is much stronger when it passes through a wire?

Perhaps a pulse large enough to damage the wire.

A pulse so intense that it could fry the microscopic wiring in small circuitry.

Given a strong enough magnetic field, microelectronics are destroyed by an electrical burst.

By destroyed, I mean entirely burned out.

The destruction of electrical components in this manner is called an EMP attack.

Nuclear Attack Bomb Explosion


One way to create a broad-scale EMP pulse is to detonate a nuclear warhead like a hydrogen bomb.

The energy release of a nuclear blast creates a sizeable electromagnetic pulse. This pulse radiates outward in all directions.

Any electrical wiring in the path of the pulse will burn out.

The nuclear explosion does not have to be very large to generate a dangerous EMP. At least one hazardous for our computer friends, not so much for us.

Unlike the radiation from a nuclear explosion, an EMP is not dangerous to people. Unless you have a pacemaker installed.

But it will destroy most unshielded electrical components.

A nuclear EMP pulse is fairly complex and is often broken into three component pulses:

E1 Pulse

An E1 pulse occurs when gamma radiation from detonation ionizes atoms in the upper atmosphere.

The E1 pulse is the fastest component of nuclear EMP. It’s brief but intense.

As the E1 pulse moves through the earth’s magnetic field, it creates microwaves. These microwaves strike the surface with an intense surge of power.

It induces high voltages in electrical conductors. Thus causing significant damage by electrical breakdown voltages.

The E1 pulse can destroy computers and communication equipment.

On December 6th President Trump’s words shook the world.

For the first time in over 2000 years, Jerusalem was recognized as the capital of Israel.

Whether he knows it or not, President Trump fulfilled his part in a frightening biblical prophecy exactly as the scriptures predicted.

Only the top church leaders and Bible scholars know the real meaning behind this great and terrible moment, yet no one is saying a thing about it…

So pay chose attention because this video will change your life forever for the good!

E2 Pulse

The E2 pulse is comparable to the pulse created during lightning strikes.

Fortunately, our national infrastructure is (for the most part) already prepared for an E2 pulse.

E3 Pulse

The E3 component is different from both E1 and E2. E3 is a much slower pulse.

The E3 component has similarities to a geomagnetic storm caused by a solar flare.

Like a solar flare, E3 can produce powerful currents. Intense enough to damage power lines and transformers (i.e., critical infrastructure).


An EMP pulse travels line of sight. So it can cover a vast area if the nuclear detonation occurs high in the atmosphere.

Most nuclear military weapons are not intended for high altitude detonations. Because high altitude detonations do little damage to the enemy and less fallout.

However, at high altitudes, the EMP would travel towards everything in its line of sight. Covering thousands of square miles!

It’s true that an EMP diminishes with distance. But it may still be strong enough at thousands of miles to fry most microelectronics.

Making the nuclear EMP a near-perfect weapon for a terrorist group or a rogue nation.

Here’s an interesting question.

If you were a terrorist organization and could only lay your hands on one nuclear weapon. Would you want to blow up one city? Or detonate it high enough to wipe out the electrical systems for thousands of cities?

Aside from nuclear weapons, there are EMP-generating devices. These are called “explosively pumped flux compression generators.”

These use electromagnetic physics to generate large pulses of electromagnetic energy.

The basic idea is to generate an electromagnetic pulse in a coil surrounding a metal core. While at the same time compressing the coil into the core using explosives.

This change in core geometry causes a compression of the electromagnetic field.

EMP’s (whether nuclear or flux compression) have the potential to change the world.

Circuit Board


Any devices not shielded against a large EMP attack is likely to be damaged or destroyed.

We’re talking damage to the following:

  • Power Grids
  • Laptops
  • iPad
  • iPod
  • Smart Phones
  • Cell Phone Towers
  • Telephones
  • Desktop Computers
  • Mainframe Computers
  • Routers
  • Automobile Engine Management Computers
  • Jet Aircraft Systems
  • Air Traffic Control Systems
  • Banking Systems
  • Hospital Diagnostic Machines
  • Televisions
  • Internet Servers
  • Refrigerators
  • Thermostats
  • Plus Anything Else With A Micro Chip

Which is damn near everything these days.

Can you imagine everyone within a thousand-mile radius losing all power and technology?

How about a city like New York or Los Angeles? We are talking about 8-10 million people finding themselves in a pre-industrial world without power!

The only things that still work are mechanical in nature (i.e., guns and bullets).

Near-instant anarchy.


There are several ways to protect against an EMP attack.

One EMP protection technique is known as electrical shielding.

If an electrical cable includes a grounded shield, the electromagnetic pulse won’t penetrate the shield.

It will induce a current in the shield and release that current harmlessly into the ground.

This is great for cables, but what about smaller devices, such as microelectronics?

Galvanized Trash Cans


You can shield entire devices using something known as a Faraday Cage.

Named after Michael Faraday, an early scientist in the field of electromagnetics.

Faraday discovered electromagnetic fields won’t penetrate a container made out of certain metals.

Instead, the field impinges on the exterior of the cage. Since all sides of the cage are electrically connected, there’s no induced electrical current.

For current to flow, there must be a differential in electrical potential.

It’s as if there is a short-circuit before the current even begins to flow.

Devices held inside the cage are then protected from damaging currents.

Nested EMP Faraday cages are even better for EMP protection. Essentially, nesting is a cage within a cage.

You can buy a faraday bag or build your own.

You can build a simple Faraday cage by covering a box in aluminum foil. If you want to protect your devices, wrap them in a layer of aluminum foil.

But take care, they must be completely covered with no gaps in the foil.

Also, if you wish to use multiple layers of foil, place a layer of insulation between them. Insulation is any material that won’t conduct electricity – like cardboard.

Adding the extra layers of thickness to the foil means nothing. The only reason to double wrap is to prevent gaps in the foil.

A galvanized trash can is also a great solution to store several devices.

Or use both foil and a trash can. Just put your electronics inside a foil-lined cardboard box and place the box inside a trash can.

Ensuring the trash can lid closes entirely and creates a perfect seal.


Now that you have all your devices protected when the terrorist EMP event strikes you’ll be ready.

Assuming you knew in advance an attack was coming and took these defense precautions.

So let’s say you did.

The “Event” Happens, And The Lights Go Out

You quickly retrieve your fully functional cell phone from your foil-lined trash can, a.k.a. Faraday Cage.

And presto, you have one of the very few functioning cell phones in the Northern Hemisphere. Congratulations!

  • Did your EMP protection plan pay off? Yes and no…
  • How many bars do you have? None?
  • Can you hear me now? No?
  • You pull out your protected laptop or IPad and boot up. Internet connection? Nope.

You’ve got a four-hour charge on the device, great.

Now, where are you going to plug in your charger (because you remembered to add a charger to your Faraday cage, right)?

  • No sweat. I’ve got a home generator – nope – it’s fried by EMP.
  • Oh, but I have home solar panels (or a solar phone charger) – nope – fried by EMP.
  • I installed a windmill – nope – the inverter is fried.
  • The utility distribution system has been fried.
  • Cell phone towers are fried.
  • The water company’s filtration and pumping systems are fried.

Food will quickly begin to spoil, and we just lost a war without firing a single bullet.


So the way I see it, you have 3 EMP protection options:

EMP Preparation Option 1

Plan for an Amish future.

Plan to revert to an 1860 agrarian society. One with the same survival skills our great-great-grandparents lived by.

The sort of skills our modern society has long since forgotten.

EMP Preparation Option 2

Store all your devices and appliances inside a Faraday cage or a Faraday bag.

EMP Preparation Option 3

Installing EMP Sheild devices on your home and vehicles.

These EMP Shields are designed to shunt massive electrical surges to protect your home electronics that are plugged in. We’re talking about extremely expensive appliances and devices such as:

  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Clothes Washers / Dryers
  • Dish Washers
  • Televisions
  • Computers

Sure, the power grid may get fried during a massive EMP but at least you can protect your home’s electrical systems and devices. Once power is restored, you’ll still have working devices, unlike most of your neighbors!!

Plus, if you happen to have solar panels on your roof, you can get an EMP shield shunting device to protect those as well! So you may be one of the few people who actually make it through an EMP attack with a power source and appliances!

Worth the small investment in EMP shield devices if you ask me…

Oh, and you can get an EMP shield for your vehicle as well – so your vehicle doesn’t become a massive hunk of junk due to the electrical components in your vehicle becoming fried.

Here’s a quick overview of how EMP Sheilds work:

So those are your three options, and I believe you should invest in all 3!

Why? Because for only a few dollars, you can protect yourself in a well-rounded way from any EMP attack!

  • You can use EMP shielding to protect your large home devices and appliance.
  • You can use Faraday cages or Faraday bags to protect backup devices (especially mobile devices…)
  • Learning survival skills is ALWAYS a good thing. But even if YOU are one of the lucky few that has power, it’s still gonna get rough if nobody else does for weeks or months.. you’d better be ready to defend it.

You’ll likely be the only one on your block (maybe your town) with any electrical power.

An EMP blast from a single nuclear device at 20 miles altitude will cover a significant portion of the US with an EMP.

An enemy doesn’t have to destroy the entire nation to destroy its society. It only needs to kill off large portions of the population!

Even the US Government admits as many 9 of 10 Americans could die within one year of an EMP attack on our homeland!

There are too many people, with too few survival skills. The majority of the US population would quickly perish with no power for a year.

Looting, rioting, and murder will be rampant – everywhere. Epic chaos.

That’s why it’s time to take EMP protection seriously and learn some real survival skills.


Step 1 – 

Install EMP Shields on your home, vehicles, and solar system (if applicable). These devices also protect your appliances and devices from lightning strikes.

Step 2 –

Aquire backups for all your mobile devices – smartphones, emergency crank radios, tablets, survival flashlights, phone solar chargers, etc. Put each of these devices into a homemade Faraday cage or buy a Faraday bag.

Step 3 – 

Brush up on your off-grid homesteading skills. You’ll at least want a book that can help you figure out how to live without power for an extended period of time.

EMP Protection is like most other long-term emergency disaster preps in many ways.

You should have a massive stockpile of prepper food and lots of water. And the self-reliance survival skills to continually replenish your stocks.

Throw in some defense skills as well – to protect your resources and some basic medical supplies.
