Faraday RF protective bags, cages, and enclosures are simple solutions to protect against EMP damage. These boxes are made of a conductive material, usually a metal-coated fabric, which creates an electromagnetic shield around the contents of the bag. This shield is designed to absorb the energy from an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and prevent it from damaging any electronics inside. It is essential to understand that an EMP is not something to be taken lightly.
A solar flare in 1859 was equivalent to 10 billion atomic bombs that would cause a huge geomagnetic storm. If such an event were to occur today, it could cause catastrophic damage to our power grid and other electronic systems. When it comes to preparing for an EMP, investing in a generator is a must. Depending on where you live, a generator can help you for a while.
It is also important to ensure that your Faraday cage is properly grounded. The electromagnetic energy is converted to electrical energy instead of continuing through the container in the form of electromagnetic energy. If an EMP hits your Faraday cage and it is NOT connected to the ground, that enormous charge has nowhere to go and can KILL a person when the current from a million-volt charge crosses that person's body to reach the ground. In addition to investing in a generator and properly grounding your Faraday cage, there are other steps you can take to protect yourself from an EMP.
Make sure you have plenty of non-perishable food and water stored up in case of an emergency. You should also have a plan for how you will communicate with family and friends if the power grid goes down. Finally, make sure you have some form of backup power such as solar panels or batteries so that you can still access essential services such as medical care or banking services if needed. Protecting against an EMP is not something that should be taken lightly.
It is important to be prepared for such an event by investing in the right equipment and having a plan in place for how you will respond if it occurs. By taking these steps now, you can ensure that you are better prepared for any potential EMP attack.
