Welcome to the EMP Taskforce on National and Homeland Security
Help us with this fundraising effort. Click here to see our Go Fund Me Page. Don Davidson is organizing this fundraiser to benefit Electromagnetic Pulse Task Force On National and Homeland Security. Join us to make a difference.
The Task Force on National and Homeland Security is concerned about the vulnerability of our electrical grid and other critical infrastructures and the danger that it poses to our children and families. Our members include citizens, engineers, field experts, and others, all united in our concern for the American people.
The threat of the U.S. power grid crashing is a very real but preventable problem but the average American has no idea of the severity of vulnerability under which we live. Experts say our power grid can be destroyed and, when that happens, 70-90% of the U.S. population will die within the first year. Experts also say it is not a mere possibility but a near certainty that the grid will be hit and it could happen at any time. Six Congressional Blue Ribbon Commissions and several independent research organizations agree with those statements. There are relatively inexpensive solutions to address the vulnerabilities of our electric grid and other critical infrastructures. Our website seeks to educate the American people regarding what is facing us and what can be done.
The Task Force on National and Homeland Security is an official Congressional Advisory Board recognized as such by the Ethics Committee under the name “The Task Force on National and Homeland Security” and as a Virginia based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization under the name “EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security”. As such, Task Force on National and Homeland Security receives no Congressional funding and operates solely on donations.
At the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, we believe the citizens and the local, state and national governments of the United States of America can come together to save lives by protecting our electric power and our critical infrastructures – including water & wastewater, communications, emergency services, transportation, healthcare & public health, food & agriculture, energy, banking & finance – against any and all threats, including cyber, physical attacks, extreme solar weather, and non-nuclear and nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP). Together, we can save lives and protect America by taking action at the personal, local, state and national levels.
The Task Force on National and Homeland Security also provides leadership for and coordinates with other affiliated groups who are concerned with the loss of the U.S. power grid and other critical infrastructures from any and all threats. The Task Force on National and Homeland Security was formed in 2011, in part, to act as a surrogate for the Congressional EMP Commission during which time it was decommissioned.
Dr. Pry is the Executive Director of Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a Congressional Advisory Board dedicated to achieving protection of the United States from electromagnetic pulse (EMP), cyber-attack, mass destruction terrorism and other threats to civilian critical infrastructures on an accelerated basis. In 2015, Dr. Pry testified in Denver on Colorado’s first attempt to pass EMP/GMD legislation. Dr. Pry also continues to serve on the Congressional EMP Commission, like his fellow commissioners, despite the current lack of Congressional funding.

WITHOUT ELECTRICITY, LIFE AS WE KNOW IT WILL END
We use electricity for almost every aspect of modern life. In our current state of unpreparedness, it is not a question of if, but WHEN, the grid collapses. When the U.S. grid collapses from a major incidence, there will be no food, water, sewage, gas, gasoline, medical services, or communications in large sections of the U.S. for years. If anyone in America doubts this, the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and other governmental and non-governmental organizations urge the American people to get the facts. Whatever you do, do not let the utilities industry decide for you.
Get the facts and then decide.
Overview of Vulnerabilities
America’s bulk electric distribution system is commonly referred to as the “electric grid” or “grid” and is a key critical infrastructure (i.e. essential system) that has made modern life possible. The nation’s 16 Critical Infrastructure Sectors include: Energy; Defense Industrial Base; Communications; Healthcare & Public Health; Emergency Services; Water & Wastewater Systems; Transportation Systems; Food & Agriculture; Information Technology; Financial Services; Nuclear Reactors, Materials & Waste; Chemical; Commercial Facilities; Critical Manufacturing; Dams; and Government Facilities. All of these infrastructures are highly dependent on electricity and technology to function. America’s electrical infrastructure and its 15 other critical infrastructures are vulnerable to various man-made and naturally occurring events.
Due to our modern-day dependence on electricity and the increasing delicacy of today’s electronics (i.e. microchips and microprocessors), our unhardened grid is woefully unprepared. Man-made threats to the electric grid include non-nuclear and nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP), kinetic (i.e. physical) attacks, and cyber-attacks. Natural threats include solar storms, severe weather, and other natural disaster events. Several of these threats to the grid have been continuing to increase in frequency and intensity in recent history. Of all the threats our nation faces, nuclear EMP can cause the widest and greatest damage to the electric grid. The U.S. also currently lacks spare parts and planning scenarios for grid down situations. Finally, the American people are unaware of the nation’s dire situation because they do not understand why previous grid failures will not reflect what the future holds if the U.S. electric grid continues in its current unhardened state.
