Re: Wake up after an EMP attack....What do you do first?
if you live in the city, you are fucked...

I am in the perfect place for when shit hits the fan...

I'm on a large private property on hood canal (WA.), in an area where the power goes out a lot.

We have our own well that runs off solar and a battery bank, and a natural spring.

No neighbors for miles, about 240 acres of trees and animals to hunt, natural rock caves, a private beach full of clams, oysters, crab, salmon.

We own a small motel, and because the power goes out so much here in the winter, we have many large propane tanks.

Some of the building were built during the Cuba missile crisis and the room we use for hot-tub and dry sauna is actually an unfinished bomb shelter (3 feet or reinforced concrete walls and ceiling) that just needs ventilation.

we have small boats (that we rent in the summer) and enough vehicles to permanently block all roads and driveways to force intruders to approach on foot.

Guns, ammo, tools... Good to go.

Shit, i could probably start a small community here.

Re: Wake up after an EMP attack....What do you do first?
No alarms went off, nothing beeped because everything is fried. It's spring so the temperature change didn't wake you. Just silence. No electricity no cars working, no noise at all. Freaky thought! What would you do first? Ride bike to grocery store? See if neighbors are up?

I don't know but I think the natural early risers would an hour or two head start before chaos.....

Re: Wake up after an EMP attack....What do you do first?
I probably wouldn't notice for at least an hour.

I wake up, without an alarm, before dawn every day. I move through the house with the lights off, so everyone else stays asleep. The dogs follow me like shadows and we head outside, me to check out the fading stars and to make sure the dogs don't decide to play with a skunk or a pack of raccoons, and them to do their thing. When we all get back inside, I light the gas stove and throw on a kettle for tea, to enjoy out on the porch, whatever the weather. I enjoy the velvet feel of night slipping into day. There is a moment every morning when you hear and sense the community around you wake up, almost as a group. And it seems like the seconds leading up to that belong to just you, because you are the only crazy-assed human up and out at that time, watching the world roll over on its belly.

Yeah, I wouldn't start to get suspicious until the sky started to turn grey and an alarm did not go off inside, waking someone up.

No biggie, though...

Three weeks without power after Sandy in freezing temps, plus a nor'easter, was a good dry run for an EMP. Half my neighborhood was washed away and we did fine.

If you don't have a wood stove, get one. They are key to survival. Seriously. Or build an indoor rocket stove.

Kerosine lanterns are also very efficient fuel-wise, although camping lanterns throw a lot more light. Not sure if the latter would be affected. Candles are worthless in terms of casting usable light...you'd have to have more candles than the Vatican to properly light a room.

I do think the GLP crowd would be the most likely to sense this is serious and get their mindset retired the fastest. The Alabama pipeline burst I was filling up gas cans thinking there would be a shortage and most thought I was being ridiculous. As it turns out they think they were right - I still wouldn't change being over prepared.

The no electricity nothing works scenario is the hardest for me to get a grip on what to do

Re: Wake up after an EMP attack....What do you do first?
I have 2 chest freezers that are connected off the main grid using a solar system. One chest freezer is modified to work as a refrigerator. Since they are off grid, they will not be exposed as much to the large E3 pulse of a HEMP. What would be the odds of the electronics and controllers, in the chest freezers, burning up in the initial E1 pulse???

Re: Wake up after an EMP attack....What do you do first?
You need to get a Lehman's Non-electric catalogue now and order all the stuff you need - like an alternative hand-pump for your well, a washboard, percolator for coffee, generator, greenhouse, garden blankets, Coleman stove, wind-up clock etc.
Then, you can wake up and figure out that you need to make coffee with the Coleman stove and the percolator pot. Going to the store or gas station won't help because they will have no cash registers, and probably won't make it in anyway. I have a small propane heater to keep the chill off. I should get another one. You need to stock up on propane beforehand. Should probably begin to smoke and make jerky out of meat like ham or turkey that you may have in the freezer. Hopefully, you will at least have dried rice, beans, and flour on hand to last you a few months.Then, plant a garden and try to get some chickens for eggs. Have plenty of fire arms at every door, along with wasp spray to deter people like kids that you don't want to kill. If you are in a large city, you are probably fucked.

Re: Wake up after an EMP attack....What do you do first?
It's going to be obvious the EMP attack will be a false flag/hoax because the only thing that won't work will be:

-Anything connected to Power Grid
-Anything connected to Wifi

Everything else, like battery operated electronics older cars, etc. will still work.

They are basically going to light a Giant Firework and turn the grid off manually, claiming an EMP attack.

It's all Fake.

99.1% of people in the country have no idea what EMP even is! Yes EMP is the three letter airline code for Emporia KS.

Wait for awhile as another follow-up EMP may be coming?
After awhile if nothing is working I go to my home made Faraday cages and get out a radio and find it works and see if anything is on air and go from there! It's gonna be a long day!

Re: Wake up after an EMP attack....What do you do first?
Water water water is a good idea. I've got a gas generator and a car battery style generator that can be recharged from solar, but my understanding is solar panels would be fried too, and they are hard to EMP proof due to the size. Most emp bags boxes end up being smaller than most solar panels.
