US Gov’t Will Conduct Power Grid Down Drill November 13-14, 2013

YouTube Description:

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ALL AMERICANS:

In case you were not aware: A Power Grid Down Drill To Be Conducted By US Government The GridEX II Drill Nov. 13-14

The U.S. Government is gearing up for a major Preparedness Drill that will simulate a Grid Down Scenario, one that will examine what would happen if the county’s electric grid was taken down by both physical and cyber-attacks.

The threat is very real and is something that we’ve covered in great detail in the past. Our electric grid is extremely vulnerable to an attack that could leave our country in the dark for weeks, maybe even months.

In preparation for this type of attack, our government is going to test the grids vulnerabilities, as thousands of utility workers team up with anti-terrorism experts, Homeland Security, the F.B.I. and other governmental agencies.

On November 13 — 14, 2013, the United States; Canada; and Mexico, along with more than 150 companies and organizations in all three countries, will take part in the GridEx 2013 Preparedness Drill – one of the largest preparedness drills in our country’s history. They will practice for an event unlike anything this country has ever seen, one experts fear is only a matter of time away from happening.

The drill will look at how the three governments react to the loss of the power grid, and a crippled supply chain that would inevitably follow the event.

      Jan, I am currently doing more research on this. It appears as though it has been scheduled and rescheduled several times. Interesting how the “Main Stream Media” has not mentioned a WORD about this- INCLUDING the “Fair & Balanced” Fox News!

      I will make an updated post when I get more concrete information gathered.

    Thanks, Cindi…Imagine what would go through your head if not alerted to this possibility…hmmm or what will now that we are alerted????

    At the risk of being called ‘prepper’ I believe ‘events’ just such as this should make us stop & think “Can we get through at least the ‘first 48′ without help in any emergency? The well pump doesn’t pump without electricity…My house is heated w/ electricity & while cuddling is nice…well……
