This came to my attention by the FBI, it is open registration to anyone wishing to participate.

Looks very interesting & "up our alley!"

Today’s lifeline infrastructures are interconnected and resourced on unprecedented scales, with supply chains spanning nations and, increasingly, the world. With this growing integration and global reach, they have brought us remarkable capabilities.

At a price.

Concerns have grown over the potential for severe malicious or natural “Black Sky” hazards associated with subcontinent scale, long duration power outages, with cascading failure of all our other globally resourced, interdependent infrastructures.

This creates a grim and difficult dilemma:

Restoration of any sector, and population sustainment during the emergency, will only be possible with carefully planned – and exercised – international, multisector and societal planning and cooperation.

To deal with this deadlock, building and exercising careful sector by sector and cross-sector resilience planning is crucial. With the diversity and the national and global scale of today’s infrastructures, this requires an unprecedented, multi-sector, national and international exercise series.

Well I signed up. I'm not quite sure what I let myself in for - we shall see. Ihe research/planning seems a worthy cause to me.

You are very welcome, JD!

Please check out this video for a taste:

We have occasionally touched upon EMP from Korean warheads, solar flares etc., so this should be
interesting.

I would NOT want to be living in a large city when this type of event happens! Have your bug-out supplies handy, know your friends, and identify your escape routes before you go to bed.
