The threat of an EMP strike to America is only going to get worse. Experts have been warning about this problem since at least the early 90's, if not before, so starting now is already years behind where we should be. However, his is an important start and should be done as soon as possible. Were the US to be hit with a significant strike from an EMP, the results could very easily be disastrous with horrific loss of life. As a registered nurse, I shudder to think how ill prepared this nations health care system would be equipped to deal with a disaster of that magnitude.
