For many people, it’s difficult to imagine what an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event could do to modern society. People are, after all, dependent on electronics and power grids to supply them with energy.

Mankind has relied on different lighting tools for years and we can rely on them once more when the situation calls for it.
