A single electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack has the capability of knocking out America’s critical electrical and technological infrastructure. The impact could cripple America, effectively sending the U.S. back to the 19th Century – a time without cars, lights, computers, or cell phones. In an instant, people’s lives would change and our ability to respond in a traditional manner – through convoys, ambulances, and hospitals would be only a memory.
