Power Grid Down Drill To Be Conducted By U.S. Gov

power-grid-drill-400x300ALERT:

Potential “False Flag”, or man-made disaster event as the Power Grid will be taken down in a drill to simulate trained response to a real emergency.
Our wish is for no state sponsored terror nor mishaps to occur.
To the Personnel, organizers and financiers of this event we ask you to halt and call off operations if you suspect a element of suspicion or anomalies.
To the reader please share details of this event to your social sphere and be vigilant and aware of everything…
Please do not make an assumption that this event will be “cover” and excuse for a false flag event.
Do not spread fear porn. Prep, alert, increase awareness and discussions are the responsible actions to take. Share information and ask questions of officials. If a false flag event does occur then we, the people are aware of the enablers as large organized drills are fertile environments for state sponsored terror.
How many organizations and personnel that will be involved (even tangentially) in this huge operation is difficult to determine. My cursory glimpse contemplates the local officials, some state officials, enforcement/security agents, emergency personnel, engineers and technicians, NERC, SUBNET, et al.
A proactive response may be to have non-electronic copies of important data (esp. bank account, other financial and medical data) in case of a severe electrical or institutional computing malfunctions. Of course keep stacking emergency home-supplies and update exit strategies. Remember to take into account traffic congestion or conventional transportation disruptions…
If you are part of a IT team or manage data and systems then your safety protocols should be followed, alert your co-workers and add more off grid power back ups for critical needs.
Keep the public discussions going; something responsible governments and corporations should be doing with local communities, but unfortunately they are not.
Disappointingly, I only became aware of this “planned Drill Exercises” by searching for conspiracy investigations and potential state sponsored false flag events. This is the type of public announcement alerts that should be on front pages of newspapers and on radio and TV news, IMO. ~ Ron

Below is a report from offthegridnews.com

Power grid vulnerabilities are finally garnering some attention by government officials.
An electrical grid joint drill simulation is being planned in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Thousands of utility workers, FBI agents, anti-terrorism experts, governmental agencies, and more than 150 private businesses are involved in the November power grid drill. [NOTE: NY Times requires a membership]

The downed power grid simulation will reportedly focus on both physical and cyber attacks. The antiquated electrical system in the United States has been one of the most neglected pieces of integral infrastructure.

The EMP Commission, created by Congress, released a report in 2008 calling for increased planning and testing, and a stockpiling of needed repair items.

The SHIELD Act, which is stalled in Congress, is the first serious piece of legislation in many years to attempt to address the vulnerabilities of the power grid in. As previously reported by Off The Grid News, a recent American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) report gave the power grid a “D+” when grading various pieces of infrastructure and public services in the United States.

The disaster drill is being described as a crisis practice unlike anything the real power grid has ever experienced. The GridEX II drill Nov. 13-14 will focus primarily on how governments will react if the electrical grid fails and, for instance, the food supply chain collapses.

American utility companies are responsible for running approximately 5,800 power plants and about 450,000 high-voltage transmission lines, controlled by various devices which have been put into place over the past decades. Some of the utility companies which oversee the power grid reportedly use “antique computer protocols” which are “probably” safe from cyber hackers,” The New York Times reported.

The Times said experts call the power grid the nation’s “glass jaw.” Even the military gets 99 percent of its power the same way everyday citizens get it – from commercially run companies.
[…]
it could black out vast areas of the continent for weeks; interrupt supplies of water, gasoline, diesel fuel and fresh food; shut down communications; and create disruptions of a scale that was only hinted at by Hurricane Sandy and the attacks of Sept. 11,” The Times said.

Former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission chairman Curt Hebert stated that if the nation fails at electricity, “we’re going to fail miserably” at everything else.

Hebert also noted that during prior power grid drills, the scenario assumed the system would be up and running again relatively quickly after an attack. This drill will assume it’s out much longer.

If the power grid fails, a lack of electricity and food delivery are only the first wave of troubles facing the American people. Police could face major problems with civil unrest. Of course, there also would not be any electric heating or cooling, which easily could lead to many deaths depending on the season.

A 2012 report by the National Academy of Science said terrorists could cripple the nation by damaging or destroying hard-to-replace components, some of which aren’t even made in the United States.

“Of particular concern are giant custom-built transformers that increase the voltage of electricity to levels suited for bulk transmission and then reduce voltage for distribution to customers,” The Times said in a summary of the report. “… Replacing them can take many months.” Said Clark W. Gellings, a researcher at the Electric Power Research Institute, “I don’t think we pay quite enough attention to the technology fixes that would allow us to make the power system more resilient.”

    Again I repeat to all readers please share information not out of fear but rather from the knowledge of inspiration to prepare. As if a storm is coming but you now we will survive and are willing to assist in helping your family and friends.
    I watched the videos and yes they are dated from Aug 2012, over a year ago.
    I think World Chaos News is sharing some important events and I have decided to share with you:

    U.S. Banks Told To Prepare For Collapse in October/ November!

    investments bank collapse

    Banks including: Bank of America Corp (BAC.N), JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N), Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N), Citigroup Inc, (C.N), and Morgan Stanley (MS.N) have been notified by government of a coming economic collapse which will possibly hit late October or early November. And while they claim this to be “preventative measures” it is all being done behind the backs of the American citizens. We the people are being left out to dry while the power elites prepare for the impending financial death of the dollar.

    The Obama administration continually assures its citizens that the economy is improving all while deviously taking precautions on their end. Why is it that they are privy to such information and we are not?
    They hold quite conversations behind corporate boardroom doors preventing us for obtaining such information.
    As a result we are forced to examine the evidence around us which shouts,“Prepare, the Collapse is near!

    My friends, it is no longer a question of ‘if’ the collapse will happen but ‘when’ the collapse will happen.
    Will it be October, November, or later?

    Want proof that the elite bankers (aka: Illuminati) are calling the shots? In the video clip below CNBCadmits it! Check it out….

    The U.S. Government Is Preparing For A Major Natural Disaster: Why Are They Keeping It Secret?

    Napolitano Head of DHS
    In a remarkably ominous farewell speech made by Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano in August of this year, the public was let in on an expected upcoming global catastrophe that everyone should be prepared for. Napolitano described that a massive and “serious” cyber-attack on U.S. homeland is coming, and that a natural disaster —the likes of which the nation has never seen before —is also believed to be on its way. The resignation marked the end of her four year term as DHS under President Obama, raising questions amongst the public about the real intent of Napolitano’s decision. As part of her farewell speech she joked for her replacement to “grab a bottle of Advil.”
    Was Napolitano’s resignation and public statement a literal warning of knowledge our government is aware of and is keeping from the people? A few months prior to Janet’s farewell speech an unsettling report prepared by EMERCOM revealed that the Obama Regime requested the use of at least 15,000 Russian troops trained in disaster relief and riot control to be utilized in FEMA Region III (District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia) in October. Former South Dakota Senator Sheldon R. Songstad, along with conspiracy website moderator David Ells put together a list of strange clues that point towards government preparation for an upcoming disaster crisis:

    15,000 Russians in Baltimore by October
    1st 82% of our combat forces and their supply elements out of CONUS by October 1st
    FEMA purchase orders for over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals to be delivered to Region III by October 1st
    FEMA purchase orders for 22 million pouches of emergency water to be delivered to region III by October 1st
    FEMA purchase orders for $13.6 million for MREs and heater meals to be delivered to Austin by October 1st
    Nine-week training course for UN Peacekeepers in CONUS to learn Urban Warfare, English and US weapons systems beginning 4th week of July for 386,000 troops to be completed by October 1st.
    $11 million in antibiotics to be delivered to FEMA region III by October 1st ordered by CDC
    World Health Organization held second emergency meeting in its history to discuss MERs coronavirus. Determined a vaccine MUST be in place by October 1st
    2800 MRAPs must be delivered to DHS by October 1st
    No leave will be allowed for US military from September 28th thru November 5th
    NORCOMM yearly training for civil unrest suspended until September 27th – to be performed in northeast coastal areas
    Date for release of QE3 report moved to October 16th
    All DHS agents MUST qualify with sidearm, shotgun & AR 15 by September 28th -no mention of yearly less lethal qualification
    Sporadic testing of GPS & Communications satellites is coordinated for the first time with a testing date of September 29th
    POTUS mandates to FEMA and DHS concerning support for metropolitan communities dealing with the extreme climate change MUST be complete by October 1st. These mandates were issued during the last three weeks.
    Over 300 school systems in the US have determined they need three-day kits for each school AND three-day kits for each student to take with them. All deliveries are scheduled for the month of September.
    All National Guard units will complete riot control and disaster assistance training during this year’s annual two week training. All units MUST have their training complete by September 30th
    Daily testing of the Emergency Broadcast System to begin on September 25th and run thru October 2nd
    Eastern-based Coast Guard units to perform massive group training usually performed in the Gulf, in the Virginia and Delaware areas. This is a 10-day training mission to begin September 26th.
    A side-note to ponder: For the first time in the history of the United Nations, the Secretary General addresses the Assembly, a speech that was broadcast live to over 60 nations, to inform the assembly that while we are dealing with what appears to be two global crises — extreme climate change and financial downturns — the governments of the world are working together to resolve the issues before they reach catastrophic proportions. In other words, he addresses the Assembly and the world just to say everything is going to be okay.

    It’s clear to see that the government is keeping something from the public. Some may argue that they are just taking necessary precautions in case of a disaster, but it appears to be something more than just ‘being prepared in the event of…’ Russian Minister Puchkov recently stated:

    “We have decided that [FEMA] and Russia’s Emergencies Ministry will work together to develop systems to protect people and territory from cosmic impacts…”

    He also further noted that his meeting with DHS Director Napolitano also covered other kinds of natural emergencies, such as the extreme weather of recent years in both Russia and the United States. It is peculiar that such meetings and preparations have taken place around the much talked about passing of comet ISON. Could the government be aware of impending devastation coming from the debris trail of comet ISON?

    Another strange incident that occurred on the coast of California this month may also point to a coming natural disaster. Two oarfish measured 16-18 feet long washed up on the shores of southern California, a rare occurrence since oarfish are bottom feeders that usually stay thousands of feet beneath the ocean surface. Japanese folklore suggests that oarfish rise to the ocean’s surface before large earthquakes strike, which is what happened back in 2011 before the 8.8 magnitude Japan earthquake hit (the same is said to have happened before the 2010 earthquake in Chile). Fishermen at the time reported seeing and catching an abundance of oarfish around the epicentre of the mega-quake. Scientists suggest that sea serpents are more perceptive to seismic shifts and changes in gas pressures.

    The idea that animals can sense when a natural disaster is about to occur is something that dates back thousands of years. Historians recorded that before the major earthquake of 373 B.C. in Helice, Greece, animals such as rats, weasels and snakes all deserted the city in a panic. Bees have also been known to leave their hives and disappear before natural disasters. Many pet owners have reported their cats and dogs acting up before earthquakes strike as well. It is thought that animals have a higher sensitivity to electrical changes in the air or gas released from the Earth. This may explain the strange appearance of the oarfish. Earlier this year, a record number of sea lion sightings were also reported along Southland beaches, including one declared ‘unusual mortality event’ in April that saw hundreds of ailing sea lion pups washed ashore. Perhaps these events are precursors for the “big one” that is said to be overdue by now, the Cascadia subduction zone earthquake along the western North American coastline. Only time will tell what these signs all really mean.
