Questions.

I read the following about Level 1:

"Wrap spare electronics with aluminum foil "

Would this include:
plug in the wall radios
handheld transceivers
portable radios
flashlights
spare computer
old hard drives
usb keys
batteries like AA, 18650

I noticed in text that it stated most battery power radios would not be damaged.

"Use battery operated AM/FM/NOAA radios to receive alerts Battery operated radios are relatively resilient to EMP. The national level Emergency Alert System (EAS) has many radio stations across the USA with some protection against EMP. Hence, listening to handheld (or car) radios may be the principle means of receiving information from the government on what is happening in your area and on what actions are recommended. "


For me, I box them up and then wrap a couple layers of foil... IMO, if I need more than that it's bigger trouble than I can handle.
BTW, it stated to remove batteries from devices before storage...

Pages 34 and 35 cover alot of basic info
