Mission

Mission Statement

At the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, we strive to:
  • educate the public, businesses, and policy makers regarding the threats to and the vulnerability of our electric power and our critical infrastructures,
  • educate the public, businesses, and policy makers regarding ways to protect themselves and our electric power and our critical infrastructures from EMP and all other threats at the personal, to local, to state, and to national levels,
  • motivate action in the public, businesses, and policy makers to protect the American people and our electric power and our critical infrastructures from EMP and other threats through to the highest levels of government possible, and ultimately,
  • have a participating role in the development of nationally recognized standards for EMP/All Hazards certification for retrofit and initial design programs.

Our Goal

At the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, our foremost goals are to educate the American people about threats to our electrical grid; advocate for policy changes to strengthen the grid and infrastructures to avoid catastrophic consequences of an attack and to prepare people for an emergency in case of an attack in order to save as many lives as possible.
