American Blackout »


Gearing Up For a Grid Down Event

So we watched American Blackout, North Korea is working on EMP weapons with technology from Russia, and the sun is acting up. It’s a great day in the neighborhood! One of our dedicated readers asked a simple question; “Will my tactical flashlight work after an EMP attack?”. This made me think that we talk about the doom and gloom all day, but why don’t we change gears and discuss how to be ready for something like this? Are you game? If so, lets roll!

Watch “American Blackout” Here!

We really enjoyed NatGeo’s American Blackout and we want to spread the information to as many people as possible. You can watch the full movie here, so please let others know so they can gain some insight to this as well. Thank you.

American Blackout – The Post Premier Review

Last night was the premier of American Blackout. Like myself, a lot of folks didn’t know what to expect with this movie. Since the inception of Doomsday Preppers and all the shows that have trailed it, people have expressed their views on whether the folks portrayed on these shows are normal or nuts. But with last night’s showing of American Blackout, I think NatGeo has redeemed themselves and shed some positive light on the reality of being prepared. WARNING: This review will contain some spoilers so be forewarned.

“EMP 101” A BASIC PRIMER & SUGGESTIONS FOR PREPAREDNESS

In preparation for tonight’s show American Blackout on NatGeo, we thought we would share this information from a well known source on the effects of an EMP blast. While it is not clear as to why the power goes out in American Blackout, we figure this may be one cause of what happens on the show. So we hope you are able to tune in tonight and see NatGeo’s perspective on an event like this.

American Blackout – Premiering On NatGeo Oct. 27th

We just got a heads up from the folks at NatGeo about their new movie American Blackout, premiering on October 27th at 9:00 p.m. ET.  No phones. No lights. No running water. What would you do if the whole country went dark and you didn’t know if or when the power would be coming back?
