    Blackout For November Confirmed: Power Grid Drill Nov 13, 14, 2013

    Blackout For November Confirmed: Power Grid Drill Nov 13, 14, 2013 (Video) | Alternative

    As reported on the 20th of September, FEMA is planning a blackout drill. We now have confirmation of this exercise occurring November 13th- 14th. This is why thousands of utility workers, business executives, National Guard officers, F.B.I. anti terrorism experts and officials from government agencies in the United States, Canada and Mexico are preparing for an emergency drill in November that will simulate physical attacks and cyber attacks that could take down large sections of the power grid.

    Anyone aware of this.

    Good. . . I guess. Not sure why this is newsworthy.

    There won't be an actual shut down of the grid, just the deployment of resources as if the grid were really down to mostly assess response times and management/coordination. It is no different than when the local EMS does a simulated plane crash or fire or terrorist attack, or some combination thereof.
