How well prepared is the U.S. to face any disaster? In the second part of this series, Glynn Cosker talks to AMU Dean Dr. Chris Reynolds about preparing for any disaster scenario, even ones that once seemed unlikely. Whereas most people once thought they would never experience a pandemic, the nation continues to respond to the spread of COVID-19. Dr. Reynolds also discusses preparing for an electromagnetic pulse, also known as an EMP, which would wipe out all electronic connections including the electric power grid, communication infrastructure, vehicles, and much more.
