Preparing For a Black Sky Hazard

The Electrical Infrastructure Security Council defines a black sky hazard as: “A catastrophic event that severely disrupts the normal functioning of our critical infrastructures in multiple regions, for long durations.” It’s an event that will shut down the power grid for an extended period and could be precipitated by cyberattacks, an electromagnetic pulse attack, or other events.

Major infrastructure components, such as hospitals and water treatment plants, would be prioritized for power restoration. But it could be weeks for sewers to resume operations. Climate control in homes would be inaccessible. So would personal banking. Gasoline would no longer be available at the pump. Everything from refrigerators to electric bike pumps would be out of service.

In today’s show, John Spence, Colorado State Director of the EMP Task Force, and EMP expert Mike Young discuss how to prepare for, and get through, a black sky hazard.
